Hello, wonderful people! I'm Parker, and I'm currently a Lead UI Engineer at Zazzle in Redwood City, CA (and San Francisco). I've been here for 5 years, and I've spent that time working towards the best possible user experience and the best tech stack to support it. I firmly believe good tech and good UX are fundamentally inseparable. Some bullets: - I've been professionally writing software since 2010 - I led the charge to upgrade our tech stack to React/React Native/TypeScript/Redux/Sagas/MobX - I continually strive to straddle the gaps between UI engineering, Product, and UX (although engineering FTW!) - I've been a UC Irvine MHCID mentor for two years - UX is so :feu: right now

Hey, I'm available every Tuesday at 7:00 PM (GMT)
