About me

Where I've been and what I've done


These days I'm a UX Design Lead at 18F where I'm designing and building open-source software for the federal government. I lead design on login.gov and have previously worked on the U.S. Web Design System and eRegulations, among other things.

Previously, I was the Director of User Experience at Edmodo where I managed a design team and made some software for the classroom as we grew from 15 million to over 41 million teachers and students using the platform. In the past, I've worked with the folks at Analyte Health to help people gain greater access to expert medical care and information. More recently, I helped start YouEye in an effort to bring high-value user research technologies to the web.

I helped teach some kids how to code at CoderDojo SF when I lived in San Francisco but I escaped to Portland before they could put me out of a job. We did release some open-source lesson plans along the way.

Once upon a time, I attended school at DePaul University College of Computing and Digital Media and studied Network Technology. If you ever need a Cisco router configured, well, I'm probably not your guy anymore. But I might know one.
