I’m an information architect with an art degree and a security clearance. I’ve been a web designer of some sort for the past 9 years: the past 3 as a user experience designer, the first 3 as the managing director of my own agency.
I was born in Manila, raised in the suburbs of Los Angeles and now reside in the Capitol Hill neighborhood of Washington, D.C.
I am neither a guru nor a ninja. I will not get your page to the top of Google’s search results. I am not an “innovator” or an “idea guy.”
I care deeply about how people interact with technology, space, and each other. If you care about these things too, I think we’ll work well together.
For my M.A. in Communication, Culture & Technology, I examined how the form of the web browser – the conventions of its user interface and other de rigeur features – came to shape not just websites but the social acceptance and cultural understanding of the web itself.
