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 and their blog, Imprint; 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.
Recently, I've spoken at the UCDA Design Summit, Triangle AMA's Fall Training Camp, HOW Interactive Design Conference, the Recourses New Business Summit, the UNC School of Public Health, AIGA Raleigh, and the Carolina Adobe User Group.
