Lead UX design and frontend development on Heroku properties at Salesforce
Building applications that cause change.
Professionally, I'm a Lead UX Designer and frontend developer designing applications on the Heroku platform at Salesforce, by way of remote life in Port Huron, MI. Previously I've worked at GitHub, Ordered List and other small design and development firms. I love simple, beautiful apps that change the way we live and do things. I focus on what it takes to make simple web applications, successful experiences, while automating all that I can.
Personally, I'm a Search and Recovery diver for the St. Clair County Sheriff Department, the Chairperson for the Dive Team Auxiliary board of directors, worship leader for Christians for a new tomorrow church, husband to Shannon and father to a 9lb yorkie who we've named Tux.

Atom is an open source text editor built as a desktop application based on web technologies. It has all your native menus and dialogs, and full access to the file system. What makes it different than say Sublime then? The power of the opensource community.
At GitHub I was part of the team who took Atom from a neat idea to a completely open source application that the market is now running with. I helped design and develop base UI and syntax themes, UX experience, marketing materials, among other elements. Atom.io

Play was how we did music at GitHub. As taken from the readme, "Play is an employee-powered iTunes-based client-driven distributed music server for your office. Also it can prepare your taxes." I never got it to do my taxes, however being able to queue up music across the world and stream along side your remote co-workers; that was done well. Play was a Rails app originally built off iTunes DJ and later moved to MPD
I worked on designing iOS and Android apps, web interface, wrote markup and styles for the web app and even did a little speaking on Play. Additional design elements can be found on dribbble.

GitHub for android still to this day holds a 4.4/5 Star rating and over 450,000 downloads in the Google Play store. I was the lone designer that worked alongside two developers to build and then opensource GitHub for Android.
