Open Source challenges us to share our best work, and enables us to learn when someone improves upon that work.

🌎 Needs

For everyone to turn off our screens from time to time.

🌏 Wants

Recognition that we’re all designers, and we’re all capable of great design. Design is not a closed community.

👏 Talk

📱 Products

Vinyl records / It blows my mind that you can carefully scratch a needle against some plastic and it’ll play any sound imaginable.

FoldingText / This app has kept me organized for years.

❔ Whois

I studied Graphic Design at Pratt shortly before Brooklyn was cool. I went on to design t-shirts for MTV, websites for Ford, apps for HBO, and financial tools for Fidelity before finding my home at Automattic. I live in a cozy red house outside of Boston with my wife, our daughter, and a friendly orange cat.
