About

Hi, I’m Michael and I’m a user experience designer for Firefox. I spend my most of my time watching how people use browsers and trying to make it easier for them. When I’m not working I love to make things (new project) 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.
