About

Hi, I’m Michael. I’m a Product Designer for Firefox by day and tinkerer by night. Lately I’ve been into astronomy, photography, hiking, triathlons (1X Ironman) and Twine.

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 helped invent video blogging (before YouTube), turned one of the first screencast tutorial sites into a tech book and co-organized a conference. I’ve also been involved in a robot talk show and kinda created Kickstarter years before Kickstarter.
