I serve the team at Webflow. 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.
This is likely the easiest place to get ahold of me. Just Tweet at me or send me a DM on Twitter if you'd like to connect.
Working while the family is watching 007 in the room next door can be quite an intense experience. GIF-alt: Intense looping GIF of a cat in a windowsill in a storm, looking up, the camera zooms in, and in, and in until all you can see is the cat's eyes. https://t.co/5vgoTPvglB

@ICondensed @webflow Thankfully svg elements can be rendered at any width. It's important to define the width via a style of an element for faster rendering in my experience (whether it's an inline or background image). The best place for answers & questions is this page ➡️ https://t.co/Kd8zuTZhWx
It's a tough time of the year outside of work for many, too. Thank and encourage someone when you think of them. Chances are, someone came to mind while reading this. Send them a message, thank them for being in your life 💜.
Good morning, world 💜 I hope that you each have a wonderful Monday and week ahead. Small ask: Encourage someone this week. 💜😁🙏 (short thread)
It's a common week of folks having to work when many others may have the week or a few days off. Rather than saying: "that sucks." Sympathize with, and encourage them please. The constant reminder that it's tough to be away can be quite discouraging. 💜

@whale I definitely smiled and chuckled audibly when I read this 😂💜 Thanks so much, Matthew!
I usually look forward to this time of year as I get to rest and reassess life. I also usually have time to work on a few items I've been eager to work on but haven't made time to spend on. That changes today. (thread) https://t.co/mL6IjLKhVo
Setting a desired destination in areas of life helps immensely with planning. I'm planning and prioritizing out the months ahead. The plan includes times of rest and reassessment. It'll be tough to stick to an exact plan, so I plan for levels of flux in everything.
I'll be sharing a lot more, and using new tools to help automate that (hope that y'all don't mind that). My time on Earth is limited, I intend to make the most of it and let my actions be evident of that desire.
Set your desired destinations in life and plot your course. Some journeys will be longer/shorter than planned. Some will stop short. We can only do our best, learn every day, and remember that we're human after all. Believe in yourself and encourage those around you 💜.

@Mariah__Driver Mariah, you're not alone, and you're doing incredible work that's making our company and this earth a better place for so many humans. Your work is foundational to the future of how we work and interact as humans to better support, encourage, facilitate change and grow together.
@alicjacolon I'm so thankful that you're here, Alicja 😁💜. If you'd ever like to connect and chat about creative solutions or making something, please let me know 😁. Your creativity is sooo inspiring to me and many others. Thank you for sharing about the different seasons of life.
Love this, Alex! Surround yourself with people that encourage you to be the best version of you, inside and outside of work. Seek out ways to encourage them, daily. These choices and actions have had the greatest impact on my life and career. https://t.co/3SZbNFBF7T
I spent so many years of my life trying appease others in order to fit in. It was exhausting, and I made my worst choices when I was in those relationships. Learned a lot of lessons through despair and felt alone constantly when I was doing that.
Finding communities of uplifting, encouraging, kind and wonderful humans has changed my life for the better. I want everyone to experience that, because I know it's possible. 💜

@sarah_edo @grahamyoung @pablostanley I think I have the same size, 2017 model? 🙈 I should know these things. It fits in my laptop bag with books 📚
@sarah_edo @pablostanley Ah just learned it's called the Symmetry tool. 😁 11/10 recommend having fun with it and turning on radial symmetry. It's soooo much fun. Also recommend exporting to PSD, bringing to illustrator, vectorizing and going to town: https://t.co/EzdDD6Clw9
@sarah_edo @pablostanley Also my mind was blown when I learned you can fill shapes by tapping and dragging a color from the upper right, into a closed shape you've drawn.

@chaseadamsio Added to the library and content consumption calendar. 💜 What headspace do you recommend to be in when reading this?
I was discussing the notion of ambitions and desired outcomes in life with a few friends, and was feeling a bit stuck with managing ambition. Shared that with my mom and she advised me to instead focus on managing time/resources and let ambitions flow/grow freely.
I've identified that I have many ambitions in life this year. Writing everyday has been one of the most impactful habits in managing streams of thought/ideas/content/plans. I have a lot to share, so I'm spending a few dedicated hours to plan a 2020 content calendar 🗓📈
This realization felt like a real turning point to help me focus on the process and order of operations again to achieve the greatest, balanced, sustainable outcomes with assessment points built in.
So often we forget to calculate the half-life of systems. There's a level of decay in all systems, and all of life as we know it. Planning check-in points and retros on our work, life, relationships, processes and systems is a critical maintenance step that a lot of us forget.
If you find yourself frustrated, stressed, panicking, losing sleep, unhappy, constantly confused, rushed, dreading the days ahead or another circumstance that you may be avoiding; know that there is hope. Don't panic 💜. Breathe. Talk to someone. Write about it. Process it.
There are a ton of 1-5 minute exercises that can drastically improve your quality of life and those around you. Here are some questions to ask yourself or conversation starters to help facilitate change you want ahead in life: https://t.co/3dxHNeNZ6o
Be courageous, hopeful, and make space to live out your strengths and allow yourself to rest 💜

@coreyhainesco Thanks for asking, Corey! 😄 I'm primarily looking to consolidate tooling. Sunrise was an all-in-one tool that did everything Fantastical 2 + MixMax does. If there's a tool that does all of those well, on mobile and desktop devices, that's what I dream about.
I'm looking to go all-in on a scheduling tool for meetings via a link. (RIP Sunrise, I still miss you). I use Fantastical 2 for my primary calendar (syncs all my calendars). I've tinkered with Calendly but relied primarily on MixMax this year. Any suggestions/advice?

Ezra is a working dog, in training, supporting a wonderful human to be their best selves. These situations are often far, and few. But we can band together in a few seconds to get more puppy photos in our feeds (I know that we all need more of that) and support a great cause.
Many humans rely on service dogs, daily. They save lives. They're expensive to come by, and their impact on society for many often goes unseen or unspoken. Learn more about different assistance dogs, today: https://t.co/SnT4UVScS1
