In the next month or two, I’ll be finishing up my master’s degree. After that, I’m looking for full-time, part-time, or contract work doing programming and/or interaction design.
What I can do
I also know my way around Java: I worked on the Eclipse team for a short time, and later worked on IBM’s Java VM for more than four years, where I wrote some heavy-duty C and C++ code. I’m also happy to dive into other languages when I need to: Ruby, PHP, shell scripting, etc.
For the past two years, I’ve been working on my master’s degree in Computer Science (with a focus on human-computer interaction) at the University of Toronto. For my master’s thesis, I did a field study examining how people use tabs in Firefox, which I recently spoke about at the Mozilla Mountain View office. For one of my courses, I also did some interaction work on the One Laptop per Child XO laptop.
For more details about me, check out my about page, or get in touch and I can send you a full CV.
What I’m looking for
For a full-time job, I’m looking for something where I can do interaction design and also write lots of code. Ideally I’d like to work on a public-facing product or site that I use and love.
For part-time and contract work, I’m up for pretty much anything that’s interesting and challenging.
