Hi, I'm Michael Verdi.

I'm a product designer and artist. I work at Mozilla on the Firefox web browser.

I've had many past lives including: nuclear sub engineer, performance artist, videographer, Ironman, high school teacher, and freelance designer/stay-at-home dad. I helped invent vlogging in the pre-YouTube days, wrote a how-to book about it, and spoke at a bunch of conferences.

For the last few years, I've been making and printing my own zines. As always, I try to cary a camera with me to film things. Occasionally I edit that stuff together. Here are some examples.

Thanks for stopping by. If you'd like to get in touch, send me an email or look me up on LinkedIn.
