I'm a 31 year old product designer at Twitter where I've been focusing on photo and video experiences including Twitter Video for the majority of my 4.5 years there. My hobby is photography, so my role at Twitter couldn't be a better alignment of my skills and passion.
I have a background in design and computer science and enjoy taking projects from sketches to high-fidelity designs and thinking about the motion design while building fully interactive prototypes. The products I design are interactive (typically mobile) products so I feel strongly that my deliverable as a designer needs to be the same and can't just be static mocks.
My passion for travel and photography led me to build a photos section. I'm passionate about archiving my journeys through capturing and sharing my photos and videos. I started doing it just for myself to make it easy to relive old trips. My photosets and collections have started getting more attention and now I'm always thinking of ways to improve, rethink and redesign them for future travels. Read more about how I make these photosets, my camera gear and stuff I use.

Some links to products on this website use affiliate links to Amazon and other ecommerce websites for products I personally use and like. If you purchase an item through one of these links, I receive a small kickback (often around 4-5%). It's how I pay some of the monthly hosting costs associated with the site. I use it when I need to purchase some products to include in articles and guides I write. Here's the necessary legalese:
