I'm a UX developer at Apervita

Are you a robot?

I am a flying robot with an over-sized electrified sword.

Would you be interested in speaking or presenting to the HTML5 Meetup?

I have a real interest in fostering community here in Chicago, particularly among my marketing, communications and startup peers. Prior to my current gig, I was Group Technology Director at Critical Mass for a bit, Director of Tech at HYC for a bit, and was at VSA Partners for 12 years as an Associate Partner leading the UX Development team. I've been working in digital media in Chicago since that meant CD-ROMs and dial-up BBS forums. A while back, I decided to give all the leadership stuff up so that I could focus on what I love doing most, which is coding. I've been a UX developer on the team at Apervita for a few years now and have been loving every minute of it.

What are you looking to get out of this group? Why do you want to join (required)

I want to teach and learn. I'm really interested in contributing to a stronger, more open Chicago development community. We have world class talent here. The world should know.

What is your profession? (doesn't have to be directly related to HTML5 but you do have to answer.)

User Interace Development
