Crafting interfaces. Building polished software and web experiences. Experimenting with magical details in user interfaces. Webarchitect at Linear.

In the past I’ve developed the Vercel design system, website, and dashboard.

Infrequent thoughts on design and code.

Now

Focused on reading, learning, and building. Working carefully and methodically. Mindful of my time and attention so that I can produce quality work and feel productive.

Building software for the web using modern features in JavaScript, WASM, and Canvas. Betting on React and Next.js for user interfaces. Curious about Swift for building apps that feel destined for their platform.

Enjoying deep, dark, boring dance music: songs that set the pace in the first ten seconds and maintain it for the next ten minutes. Deep is a curation of my favorites. Tony’s Deep Sets, Deep Space House, and All Day I Dream are daily mixes.
