Building experiences that cause change.
As the journey of life is told, I pray its obvious that I forged a path intertwined with faith, hope and love, full of family, and community. In 2005, I sealed my fate with my college crush, Shannon, as we embraced the vows of marriage. Years later our family grew with the laughter, warmth and the energy of our two precious daughters, Ella and Madisyn. Outside the walls of our home, my life is full of passions – from strumming melodies as a Guitar-playing Worship Leader to assuming the role of Chairperson for the Dive Team Auxiliary
. Diving into the depths of both literal and metaphorical waters, I proudly contribute as a member of the St. Clair County Search and Recovery dive team. Infused with creativity, my measure of success is love, devotion, and a steadfast commitment to making a meaningful impact in the world around me.
In my professional journey, I have spent decades designing and build developer tools, driven by a passion to empower the masses. Currently I am 8 years into my role as a Lead UX designer and front-end developer at Salesforce
by way of the Heroku
Platform. My imprint can be traced across the world, including the design and development of tools such as the new Salesforce CLI (sf), UX on CodeBuilder, the Heroku Dashboard, and the first ever Elements Marketplace, among other impactful contributions. Prior to my tenure at Salesforce, I owned the title of "Creative Badass" during my four-year stint at GitHub
, where we catalyzed change for millions of developers worldwide. Notably, I played a part of the incredible five person team at OrderedList, which eventually marked GitHub's inaugural acquisition, solidifying a legacy as a catalyst for positive transformation in the realm of developer tools. I'm passionate about 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.
However, I'm not a wordsmith, so ChatGPT got these impressive intros started for me.
