I'm Paul but you can call me Stammy. I'm a designer at Twitter. I have worked on growth, photos, Twitter for Mac and more. I spend most of my time designing for mobile (usually Android-first) and then implementing those designs as interactive prototypes and thinking about the motion design. I get joy from crafting great user experiences, be it with stellar interactions, scintillating aesthetics, performant Souders-approved front-end code or a myriad of friendly, guiding microcopy.
I earned my Bachelor's with Honors in Computational Media – a CS/design degree – from Georgia Tech in 2008. In mid-2010 I sold my possessions and drove from Atlanta to San Francisco in order to be closer to Silicon Valley.
I have a passion for photography that lead me to create a separate photos section on this site. My current camera of choice is the full-frame Sony a7s, but I'm also a fan of my GoPro for aerial photography on a quadcopter. You can about all the stuff I use.
I owe a lot of my past opportunities to this blog. Yahoo! found me here and flew me to Sunnyvale for an internship in 2006. Ford gave me an unreleased car to help them with marketing. Nike put me in a commercial for Nike+. General Motors flew me to various car events, such as DARPA Urban Challenge. I've guest written for TechCrunch, appeared on BBC and was at one point the #1 Paul on Google. And Twitter found me through a popular blog post I wrote.
