I was fortunate to be able to attend An Event Apart in Atlanta last week. One of the talks was from Luke Wroblewski, and it was called "Screen Time." In it, he examined the vast numbers of screen resolutions and rotations and sizes and types, how much stuff we are trying to throw onto said screens, and how we can better design in light of these things. He addressed in varying degrees of depth concepts like CSS optimization, SVG, responsive images, horizontal and vertical media queries, input methods, and postures at which humans use devices.

If you've been to this site before over the years, you may have realized I did a redesign recently. Around Christmas, I finally launched version 4 since I bought this domain in 2006 (many versions of personal sites existed before that). I'm reasonably happy with this version, and I've been wanting to take a little time to write about it.

Recently, I had the opportunity to read Unfinished: Believing Is Only the Beginning, the new book from Richard Stearns, through Thomas Nelson's BookSneeze program for bloggers. Stearns, of course, is the President of World Vision US.

Recently my friends at The Adventure Project were featured on Upworthy, and a ton of stoves for folks in Haiti were funded. Here’s an update about that, and also an opportunity to sponsor entrepreneurs there, empowering people to get themselves out of poverty and help their communities.

Kathy Escobar gives some lovely ideas for Lent for folks with shifting faith, or who feel lost. Needed this.
even though i am a person who enjoys this season for the most part, i notice that some of the stuff i read makes me cringe a little. it can feel so exclusive, only for a certain group who speaks a certain language. it can feel privileged, seemingly irrelevant to many people without resources or margin. it can feel contrived, a little like christmas where there are actually 11 other months of the year where our hearts are supposed to be just as open to God and others.

From Greenpeace (I’m late in linking to this, but I’m so happy it’s moving this way):
Apple has flexed its muscles in the past to push suppliers to remove hazardous substances from products and provide more renewable energy for data centers, and it is proving the same model can work to reduce the use of conflict minerals.

I do design strategy, design research, user interface design, and build responsive websites with HTML5 and CSS. I'm passionate about discovering and solving problems, learning about people to make things they like to use, and beautiful interfaces.
Who I work with
