Hi, I'm Ross. A product designer, full-stack engineer, and systems thinker that loves making things for the web.
I started my career running a screenprinting stationery company where I printed all kinds of fun products out of a 1-bedroom apartment in NYC. I worked as a hand-lettering artist, illustrator, and print designer for a while before trading paper for pixels and moving to San Francisco to become a product designer.
These days I split my time between being a Principal Design Technologist at Splunk and pursuing a Masters in Computer Science from Stanford. I like French Bulldogs, cryptocurrency, and my Aprilia RS 660. If you let me too close to your closet I'll organize it.
SVG Gobbler is a browser extension that finds the vector content on the page you're viewing and gives you the option to download, optimize, copy, view the code, or export it as an image. Proud to say there are over 8k people gobbling SVGs with this extension.
A fun little web app for accurately calculating the dollar amount of regret you should feel for not investing in cryptocurrency sooner.

55 Hi's was a company I owned and operated for several years that closed up shop in 2014. The claim to fame was making a card that turned into a shot glass. Though the business is now defunct, I leave the website up because it gives a good glimpse into how effective I am at writing bad jokes.
