Hybrid designer-developers are rare. I'm a self-taught developer since before CSS existed. My university degree is in architecture and I minored in graphic design. I spend my free time reading professional journals to keep up to date on industry trends.
❤️ I love design and development.
🏄 I've travelled the world but California is the only place that feels like home.
📖 I value knowledge.
🍷 Coffee, tea, or wine please.
🕹️ Video games are my primary recreation.
🥏 Sports aren't my thing but I do play frisbee golf.
I honor the 5 Ws. Who, what, when, where, and why? I love it when you ask those questions too.
I prefer to plan rather than to improvise.
Entropy & chaos will happen. Expect the unexpected.
I'm somewhere in-between introvert and extrovert. Interacting with people can be exhausting but it's also enjoyable.
Please help me document things! I have a good short term memory but a terrible long term memory.
My background in architecture adds a unique behavioral psychology element to my designs.
Working with me
I'm in the Pacific time zone and I'm not a morning person. That said, I'm happy to be accommodate your schedule. We're all in this together!
If you add something to my sprint, then something else has to be removed. Lead time is usually measured in weeks and months, not hours. I understand that it's important to be flexible and pivot when appropriate.
If you need to contact me I recommend a direct message on Slack. That said, in the afternoon I turn off Slack to focus.
If a park ranger warns you about the bears, it ain’t cause he’s trying to keep all the bear hugs for himself.
A designer knows he has achieved perfection not when there is nothing left to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.
If you don't have time to do it right, when will you have time to do it over?
Everybody has a plan until they get punched in the face.
I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
