Hi I'm Micah,

I make things cool.

I do pretty much everything, but my specialty is making interfaces pop. I take a multidisciplinary approach to my work that blends visual and interaction design with decades of engineering experience.
If you need some good old fashioned software engineering, I do that too. I’ve written JavaScript, Ruby, Python, and PHP for million- and billion-scale systems.
In general, I’m comfortable working end-to-end on a product, from initial wireframes to architecture to deployment. These days I mostly build Node/React apps and ship them out to PaaS/FaaS providers, but variety can be nice too sometimes, y’know?
Keep scrolling, I have some work to show you.

Cool things I've made:

Time for a case study! Let’s talk about Discord, where I was a front-end engineer.
Because they started as a game studio, Discord’s designers also happen to be phenomenal illustrators and concept artists. Taking large, colorful design elements and building them out with a sense of depth and motion was a ton of fun.
Here are a few snapshots of the work I did for them:

That's about it for now.

Thanks for scrolling through everything, I put a lot of work into a lot of that work.
