Web Development: I’m a software engineer at Etsy and was previously the technical lead for Kabinet, a site for sharing personal care product recommendations. My personal projects include Pick-a-Color (a jQuery color picker for Twitter Bootstrap), SimpleSelect (a lightweight library for hierarchical DOM element selection), and We Still Feel Fine (a visualization of feelings from the Twitter Streaming API).
Product Strategy & User Experience: I was the first product manager at Outside.in, a hyperlocal news aggregator that was acquired by AOL in 2011 and merged into Patch, a network of local news sites. I led user engagement initiatives at Patch until 2012.
This site: This blog/portfolio (blogfolio?) documents my work, side projects, and sundry interests. I blogged a ton on a site I called kenspeckle (it means “conspicuous” in Scottish) between September 2005 and September 2008. I’ve imported most of my old posts to this blog for posterity.
