One of our core values at Newfangled is to maintain an ongoing cycle of learning and teaching, so I'm thrilled to spend much of my time sharing what I've learned about the web with my colleagues and our clients. The rest of my time is spent managing the personnel and systems that keep Newfangled producing.
I've written articles on the the current and future state of the web for Newfangled, PRINT Magazine; HOW Magazine and their blog at HOW Interactive Design; Smashing Magazine, my personal blog, and am the author of The Strategic Web Designer: How to Confidently Navigate the Web Design Process.
I speak often on interactive design and digital marketing topics. Some of my recent talks have covered the future of web development, studying user behavior, entrepreneurship, the future of content marketing, the web design process, responsive design, getting interactive design feedback, content strategy and production, emerging technologies in public health, writing for creative people, and something I call technosprawl.
