I've designed magazines and posters, and a ton of websites, styleguides, pattern libraries, components and web apps. I have a good working knowledge of viewer/reader/user experience patterns and principles. Usability for the win!
Project & Business Management
Over the years, I've gravitated towards product design, project management, and entrepreneurship. Gathering feedback, writing business plans and proposals, managing projects and tasks.
Writing & Content Optimization
I'm a fan of clear and concise copy - so that's how I write. Well-researched, relevant content is key to any quality marketing strategy, and to keep the power of knowledge flowing on the web!
I can often be found designing, researching, or planting my forest garden. My focus is on ecosystem restoration and taking advantage of natural diversity to build a highly productive, largely self-maintaining agricultural forest. Real food for the win!
No weekend is complete with out a walk through the forest, or down the beach. I can often be found hunting for wild edibles, fishing, crabbing or photographing fungi.
The Open Web
The open, transparent, accessible flow of information is a powerful thing. I believe this is the only way humans will survive alongside modern/future technology (as we know it) - but not without accepting it won't save us.
Music & Audio
Whether a vast array of music, a good audiobook, or an informational or hilarious podcast. I listen whenever I possibly can. Nearly half of my learning is through audiobooks and podcasts. Music is a great de-stressor.
