CableWrangler.io

When you have 100+ cables and dongles, you build a small React app to organize them. I made a JSON inventory dataset to power it; now I can find that HDMI to USB-C breakout box I was looking for. Visit the site.

What I Bring to the Table

Experience, knowledge, wisdom, passion, curiosity.

I've taught more than 500 people over five years and I've led huge UX redesigns, created digital strategy, managed people, coded sites, been a visual designer, and a motion graphic artist.
