Design Systems Advocate & Advisor, Community Builder, and Writer/Speaker in San Francisco, California
I am a designer, public speaker, event organizer, writer, editor, artist, and CSS developer currently living in San Francisco, California. My focus is on Design Systems/Style Guides/Pattern Libraries, Visual/Graphic Design, and CSS architecture (with Sass).
I am currently consulting and advising with companies such as Amazon, Upwork, and Webflow on design systems. Previously, I worked at Salesforce where I was lead designer on the Lightning Design System, and I worked at Apple where I was a visual designer and led the CSS architecture remodel for the Apple Online Store.
I currently organize a design systems conference (clarityconf.com) and 2 meet ups (sfdsc.co / themixinsf.com), and I have spoken at many conferences around the world. I've coauthored three books (Design Systems Handbook, Fancy Form Design, and The Art & Science of CSS), and I tech edited 2 (Sass for Web Designers and Sexy Web Design). I created and maintain the Design Systems slack. I curate the Design Systems publication on Medium as well as the Sass News email publication. I also maintain the brand and website design for the Sass language.
