Hi, my name is Mike! I help startups win through user-centered design, and the ability to wear multiple hats.
Using Ruby on Rails as my foundation, I've built and maintained several Web and Native Apps that leverage React, React Native, Electron, and more recently, Hotwire, Turbo, and Stimulus.
With a background in UX design and 9+ years of invaluable lessons, I've developed a keen focus on:
- Shipping features quickly without big designs upfront.
- Spotting areas of technical debt early.
- Enhancing and simplifying existing UX by minimizing UI interaction count.
- Writing tests that focus on what matters.
- Writing maintainable business logic.
