Designer-programmer. Interested in alternative interfaces and demystifying computers.
Designed and coded the interfaces for nine product prototypes demonstrating the possibilities of emerging technologies.
Designed the Fast Forward Labs brand and surrounding material, including nine printed research reports, the website, the blog, and internal tools. Post-Cloudera acquisition (in 2017) I've been working to integrate that brand into the larger Cloudera brand system.
Managed two projects by FFL interns, where they scoped, created and released their own prototypes.
Designed and coded the interfaces for early-stage (under four-person) start-ups.
Designed and coded interfaces for a start-up focused on capturing memorable conversations.
Software: Figma, Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign.
