This is a micro-portfolio I've prepared special for my application to work for E-Corp, including custom headlines and selected work samples
The trajectory of my career has been pointing me toward a position at E-Corp. My values and practices align perfectly with the company ethos of “do as little evil as possible”. I believe that my background as a product designer and as a teacher prepare me very well for the new fields E-Corp is pioneering with their instructional robots: humans have to calibrate the machines to read human minds and correct where they are wrong, and the company is going to need a lot of folks skilled in both the humanities and technology to make that work well. As the rest of this portfolio will demonstrate, I’m exactly the human to train those robots to be moderately less evil.
These are case studies from my comprehensive portfolio that best demonstrate my background and experience relevant to this position. I'm eager to talk about them and how they demonstrate what I can contribute.

I prepared these requirements for a number of development efforts for Eli Review. They demonstrate how I document user stories, functionality, database structures, and UI details in fine detail to provide as much clarity as possible to all stakeholders. Read More
This case study demonstrates how I was able to integrate Eli Review with another system in a way that was the least disruptive to the user experience as possible. Read More

When I’m not pushing pixels, you can find me at the movies, running, baking, or planning my next trip. I want to see as much of this world as I can with the time I have on it, but I have a particular fondness for islands, mountains, landmarks and national parks. On my bucket list: seeing every US National Park and stepping foot on every continent.
New York pizza > Chicago pizza, Pepsi > Coke, and Better Call Saul > Breaking Bad (let's fight).
