I grew up in Northern California with silicon flowing through my veins, being taught at a young age about many aspects of the high-tech industry. I have been in the industry for over 4 years, developing/designing applications for real estate companies, corporations, online communities, laboratories, & non-profits. I have a Bachelors degree in New Media from the Academy of Art, San Francisco. I has a strong attention for detail, and am absolutely fascinated with the way people interact with the social web. I'm always trying to find new ways to create better user experiences.
When the design process is "over", I can be found hacking away a ruby code, buried in unix commands or soothing the ways of the php monster. Following some of my favorite acronyms AMSDEOT (A method should do exactly one thing), and CAPITROAE (cut & paste is the root of all evil) along the way. When not basking in the glow of my 15 inch MacBook Pro, I can likely be found jumping off bridges, falling out of airplanes, or flying of cliff faces in the greater Bay Area, as the adrenaline, (and gallons of Red Bull), "give me wings."
