Long Interfaces


About Me:

I’m an optimistic interface designer
interested in making public infrastructure
more easy, beautiful, and fun.

Recent Works:

Previously, I’ve worked for
IBM, Tumblr, Samara, and others.
Prior to designing software,
I was an industrial designer.
So, in a very real way,
practical physicality
deeply informs how I work.

Closing thoughts:

More often than not, the most meaningful
human activity boils down to providing
support structure for one another.
In turn, the most meaningful “designed”
output is the infrastructural.
