I’m a husband, dad, front-end dev, designer and nerd. I first encountered the Internet through a Lynx text browser in a BBS. I’ve been fascinated by it ever since. I studied Graphic Design and Digital Media at University of Central Florida and started working as a professional web designer way back in 2003. Believing that everyone should know basic design concepts, I wrote The Principles of Beautiful Webdesign which has sold more than 90k copies over 2 editions.
While I love great design and designing things myself, I’m also a tinkerer. I enjoy making things work and more importantly, making things that people enjoy working with. I currently lead a talented team of fellow makers at MailChimp who proudly bear the title of UX Developer.
