I’ve sort of been on here since last year, but I never did the #introductions thing, so hi! I’m Greg (gb on birdsite). I’m #designsystems lead / #ux designer at a company in #austin, but I used to live in #seattle and even #australia. I’m big on #inclusion and #accessibility.

This series of off-the-cuff covers still blows me away. Especially when you see a very undiscovered Courtney Barnett taking part (she was the opener on the tour)
Interviewed two designers today. I’m very rarely negative about people, even if they’re wildly under-qualified. I’m just honest. But after we do a round table… good lord, I don’t know how anyone gets hired anywhere. It’s like we have to talk other interviewers down from the ledge over their opinion of a person they talked to for an hour.
“They seemed overconfident! I just… I couldn’t work with that person.” 😵
My team at $dayjob is taking turns at Brownsville helping people navigate the US immigration process. They're taking supplies to people trying to enter the country and either get asylum or refugee status because they have to wait in line for days or weeks before hitting the icebox. These supplies include clothing and nonperishable food.
If you have a few dollars, would you please consider buying some supplies for us to distribute?
Thank you very much.
