Questions and Answers

What are your preferred software programs?

I used to use Photoshop and Illustrator for designing but, I have since switched to using Sketch for everything from wire-framing to prototyping. Every update brings in features that I was missing from Photoshop (although, there's still no Layer Comps). And, people are creating helpful addons all the time.

Similarly, Framer keeps getting better and better for prototyping. I'm pretty comfortable with Javascript and I'm really starting to get the hang of Coffeescript.

My text editor of choice is Sublime Text.

How do you keep your knowledge of design and usability up to date?

My feeds include articles from Medium, InVision Blog, Smashing Magazine. My browser tab shows a steady stream of shots from Dribble that can spark inspiration.

What is the coolest thing you have seen on the Internet this month?

As of the middle of June 2018, "Cultural Learnings of #nofilter for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Affiliate Marketing"

How do you deal with stress?

A couple of years ago, I took a training course in Transcendental Meditation. I meditate for 20 minutes twice a day everyday. I was skeptical at first but, I noticed a difference on day one.

What do you do for fun?

I ride up and down Highway 1 on my Kawasaki KLX351S and sometimes talk to myself on camera.
