Hey, I'm Paul!

I design and code inclusive websites and web apps. I love switching back and forth between my sketchbook and code editor, obsessing over design systems, accessible interfaces, and performant code.

I live in sunny Portland Oregon where I build accessible design systems and progressive web apps with the talented folks at Cloud Four.

In addition to designing and developing websites I enjoy writing, drawing, gardening, cooking, and exploring the great outdoors.
