Thomas Winston Thorpe is a UI/UX designer and developer, entrepreneur, and all around good guy living in Seattle with his better half and two neurotic cats.
Hi, I'm Thom Thorpe and I'm the Web Manager for Human Resources as well as The Whole U. Before joining the University of Washington, I filled the rolls of UI/UX designer, Web developer, project manager, and business strategist for several Seattle-area startups. I have also created and managed several startups of my own. My areas of focus are around usability, accessibility, analytics, business strategy, and business development. I've won many awards for my work, including a Webby Award in 2009. I'm also no stranger to the world of education, having started my career at Loyola University Maryland, after receiving my degree in Psychology.
I currently live in Seattle with my better half and two neurotic cats. It's not uncommon to find the two of us at estate sales, antique malls, or vintage stores looking for that next amazing piece for our collection. When not on the hunt for antiques, we love trying new restaurants and visiting vineyards in Eastern Washington. We also love being outdoors; on a sunny weekend, there is no place that we would rather be then on our bicycles touring this great state of ours.
