I love to make things.

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