Hello. I'm a technology designer from Vancouver.

I am the co-founder of Give, a platform that allows you to give money directly to musical artists. It's a brand new old way to support the artists you love.

I am also the Senior User Interface Developer at Slack: a paradigm-shifting tool for team communication.

In my work, I design and build systems that are useful, beautiful, and that improve the lives of those who use them. I strive for simplicity (fewer things at a higher quality), goodness, and progress.

Measure twice, cut once.


A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.
Robert Heinlein

The price of anything is the amount of life you exchange for it.
Henry David Thoreau
