Hi, I’m Michael and I’m a product designer at Mozilla where I work on Firefox. I spend a lot of my time watching how people use browsers and trying to make it easier for them. Outside of that, I love to make things and do triathlons (1X Ironman).
I’ve had a ton of past lives including: nuclear sub engineer, performance/video/theater artist, high school media teacher (my students went to Sundance), freelancer, and virtual world ad agency creative director. I was into videoblogging, pre-YouTube, turned one of the first screencast tutorial sites into a tech book and helped organize a conference. I’ve also been involved in a robot talk show and kinda inventing Kickstarter years before Kickstarter.
