<!-- design -->

I started off focusing on UX Design and made my way onto the core team who built and maintained the living styleguide in OOCSS (Object Oriented CSS) at Trulia. With these experiences, I presented a talk to an audience.
See my resume for my full work history and dribbble for updates.

I'm spending the summer painting and taking a break from design.
Not available for new design projects

<!-- talks -->

Designers venture into the world of Engineering. I spoke about the value of having a component library and the design process where it touches implementation, seeing your mocks to shipping. I argued that designers need to understand code to best communicate with the awesome people building who build our designs. The end goal isn't to replace our engineers, but to speak the medium's language.

This deck was made for IXDASF on a night of Design Doing.


Other Speaking Experience —
  1. Thoughtbot Prodcut Design series
  2. Academy of Arts visual design studio class
  3. Carnegie Mellon BXA alumni panel

I'm interested in giving more talks about style guides, CSS, or how paintings has informed my design process.
Invite me to speak

<!-- sketchnotes -->

I started sketchnoting as a means to engage. It blossomed into a powerful vehicle to meet fantastic folks while giving back. My Interaction '13 sketchnotes and CSSConf sketchnotes are featured on The Sketchnote Army. I'm open to collaborate formally on visual notes for your event.
Have me sketchnote your event
