I'm a product designer and developer in Seattle. I've been making websites and mobile apps for over 25 years. I am also a music producer and beatmaker.
Currently, I am working full-time for PANDA AI, a Seattle startup with bold ambitions around making the apps you use more useful though NLP and other modern tech.
For years, I did contract work for a variety of clients. I've worked with Facebook, Microsoft, Yahoo, and countless others.
In the not-too-distant past, I held senior roles at Seattle firms including Vantage Sports and Simply Measured.
From 2010 to 2012, I co-founded, designed, built, and sold Lendle, a book lending app for Kindle users.
Between 2007 and 2011, I published Pro CSS Techniques and Web Standards Creativity for Apress, and appeared at dozens of conferences in the U.S., Europe, and Australia.
In 2005 and 2006, I worked on the team that created Django, the framework that is the foundation for products such as Pinterest and Instagram.
I am also a music producer, working primarily with Maschine and Ableton in various hip-hop (lofi, boombap, trap, pop) and EDM (future bass, house, trap, pop) genres.
I studied jazz, theory, and composition in school, and these days I bring a traditional music education to the bedroom producer world and modern popular genres.
I am interested to make music more a part of my business, so if you are looking for music for your podcast (or vlog/film, etc.), beats to spit on, or a producer to collab with, please contact me.
I'm a father, a Buddhist, a yogi, a hip-hop head, and an NFL fanatic. I stand for love, tolerance, acceptance, and non-judgement.
I believe that Black Lives Matter ✊🏾, Love is Love 🏳️🌈, and No Person is Illegal 🧡.
