I work full-time at Buffer as Senior Design Engineer, where I bridge design and development to oversee technical strategy for Buffer’s marketing site and blog.

Outside of my full-time role, I enjoy creating educational content in the following ways:

  • being a guest on podcasts and livestreams
  • speaking or teaching workshops at conferences
  • writing articles
  • creating courses

Clients I’ve worked with

Tailwind Labs

From 2020 to 2021, I worked closely with Tailwind Labs, the team behind Tailwind CSS, Tailwind UI, Refactoring UI, and more.

My work was focused on accessible design and development, including building the official Figma kits for Tailwind UI, coding new Tailwind UI components, and supporting accessibility efforts for Headless UI.


From 2021 onward, my work with the team at Tasseled focused on developing their accessibility, design, engineering, and team practices.

My work involved redesigning the marketing site and web app, overhauling accessibility throughout the product, defining engineering standards such as Test-Driven Development (TDD), and introducing true lean processes to all disciplines.
