The Tent: Day to day routine at Blue Tent.
Since I mostly work from home, its usually all over the map, depending on what household crisis is or isn’t happening. Sometimes I escape to the library or the coffee shop, or I’ll put in a couple hours after everyone goes to bed. But mostly, I try to have a couple espressos early, jam some straight hours manipulating bits and striving for pixel perfection and try to work in an exercise break in the afternoon.
The Tent: Favorite aspect of your role
I want to make the web a more beautiful and user friendly place. I love banishing crummy designs and poor user experiences, love problem solving, taking on challenges, being creative and staying on the cutting edge. I love the wide variety of projects that I am able to work on and working with other smart and talented people.
The Tent: One vice.
Words with Friends

Spending it with the kids.
The Tent: If you could work remotely from anywhere, where would it be?
