What I'm Doing Now

Updated: Feburary 15, 2017

When I'm not working or merrying around with my family and friends, I'm currently focusing on these things:

Investing time in Various Communities

  • Ward 41 (my local neighborhood) meetings and its Participatory Budgeting project
  • ChiHackNight, a weekly event for civic engagement via technology
  • A11YCHI, a group of digital professionals working for accessibility and inclusive design
  • DeafPros, including the local (Chicago) community of designers, developers and like-minded professionals
  • Slack Teams/Groups (My current faves: XOXO's, Whiplash Discussion, and WeAllJS)
  • Uncommon, the internet's front porch for Slow Web Movement

Learning Design More Deeply In Various Ways

Living and Resting Well

  • Planning a family camp trip to the Southwest (Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and Colorado) in the summer
  • Fanboy-ing at Frank Lloyd Wright sites
  • Breaking for teas, walks, conversations, books and songs
  • Valuing food above hoarded gold: Pho noodles at Pho Loan (Uptown), pozole and pambazos at El Habanero (Logan Square), Cha-Shu Ramen at Misoya (Mt. Prospect, IL), italian beef at Nottoli + Chicago dogs at Superdawg (Norwood Park), fried chicken at Harold's (South Loop) and tacos at Carnitas Uruapan (Pilsen) and much more
