When I have to put myself into a professional bucket, I call myself a “Creative Engineer” My background spans alternative energy, community radio, permaculture, wired and mobile Internet telephony, open-source advocacy, social gaming, and interactive experience design. I find myself meandering between cynicism and optimism for both design and engineering. But I strongly believe that technology is a facilitator for art and user experience, and that technology should be easy, fun, and approachable for everyone.

Weird and wonderful ideas and people

Best piece of advice I've ever heard

Do it anyway.
