Waldo Broodryk Portrait

Hi, I'm Waldo Broodryk

I serve the team at Webflow,ย I'm a web designer and lover of animating all things on the web. I enjoy writing about my thoughts on web design, going hiking, snowboarding, surfing, swimming, making YouTube videos, taking pictures of our doggo and hanging out with friends and family.

Sometimes I share things on Twitter

This is likely the easiest place to get ahold of me. Just Tweet at me or send me a DM onย Twitter if you'd like to connect.

Just so y'all know, I'm actually tracking macros, to a degree, and otherwise working out more now than I have in years. I've been struggling with my weight since I finished swimming in college. Goal for October: https://t.co/6f3NRcCupu

For y'all interested in Superhuman, it does cost $30/month to use. I was quite price averse to using it in the past, and I don't use the open/close tracking feature (it's turned off by default). I've received that value back in less than a few minutes of using the platform.
