Please introduce yourself. What do you do?
I'm a product designer that loves to write and teach. I've worked on lots of products from Real Player back in 2000 to consulting at Frog Design to startups to Windows Phone to my current job at Twitter. On the side, I founded a company that teaches design called UX Launchpad.

What's life like working at Twitter?
The other day I was DMing with someone in a war zone about some Twitter feature ideas that would help them to survive. That's how life is: humbling and complicated. Everyone has ideas about what Twitter should do, and only a small group of people actually get to design and ship them. That's always on my mind.
