Hello. My name is Ross Moody

Product designer by trade, front-end engineer at heart. Currently leading the šŸŒ± Garden Design System at Zendesk out in sunny San Francisco.


I'm a graphic designer that evolved into a systems designer that can't stop trying to be an engineer.

I have a tendency to get fanatical about difficult hobbies so I can figure out the most effective way to do them. Once I start to get good at it I become bored and move on to something new. This is probably why I'm so drawn to systems design.
