I'm Paul but you can call me Stammy. I'm a designer at Twitter working on the photos team and previously on the growth team where I spend most of my time designing for Android and iOS. 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 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.
