I was born in Ireland in 1983, and via a dial-up modem and a lot of CD burning I found my way to being a designer of screen-based things. I graduated from DCU with a BSc in Multimedia and spent my 20s working in digital agencies and startups in Dublin, before moving to California in 2013 and getting married.

Two cats and two children later, I live in Point Richmond, CA. I've spent the last seven years specializing in front-end and UX work at Engine Yard, Barricade and Deis.

Now I am part of the Containers team at Microsoft Azure - where I brand, build and work to bolster various open source community projects; with the continued goal of making technical tools accessible and friendly to all.
