I love to make things.

Here are some examples. I launched three successful Kickstarter campaigns called For One Hundred Of Our Closest Friends, wrote a design blog and book called Design Dare, wrote an essay named Design Courage, designed an email game called The Long Talk, have three children, am the co-author of Design Explosions, a new kind of design critique,, currently work at Twitter, am writing a book I'm jokingly calling I Hope You Like Words, wrote an essay called "Of Course" Design, worked at frog design, designed and wrote the code for TV's Big Brother 3, wrote a book on design called The Thing About Jetpacks, was a design lead on Windows Phone, have three email lists called Big New Things, New Things, and just Things, redesigned the mainframe for Computer Associates, ran a short lived and beloved blog called Fuck Jetpacks, have given many talks including one at SXSW called How Great Design Ruins Experience and another one called Design While Shipping, designed several board games when I was a kid, designed a concert poster for an anonymous musician named Slow Magic, give away all my sketchbooks, draw an ongoing comic called Yet Another Comic, wrote an essay called McDonald's Theory, created a micro-blogging site called Yay Bouquet, run a company called UX Launchpad, host a monthly meetup called Design Play Seattle that's a lot of fun, designed an app for a voice transcription company called Jott that launched on the app store on day one and was #1 in productivity for a while, worked at the Art Institute of Seattle for a year teaching designers about code, and I wrote this silly webpage.

My current status:

It's the weekend! I'm spending time with my family right now.
