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.
