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 design 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 design work at Engine Yard, Barricade and Deis.

Now I am part of the Containers team at Microsoft Azure - where I design, brand, build and work on open source community projects; continuing our goal to make technical development tools accessible and friendly to all.
