Journalist. Designer. Digital evangelist.
  1. I am a journalist running on 90% caffeine and 10% water
  2. I believe technology informs design and design informs technology (isn't lovely how 'content' can replace 'design' in the aforementioned phrase?)
  3. I surround myself with problem-solvers instead of problem pointer-outers

OH And... I ♥ Pixar.
