Currently I’m happily employed as an interface designer at Salesforce, and living with my beautiful wife, Remy, in San Francisco, California.
When I was 6 years old professional baseball star Will Clark called me a “dirtbag.” For any 6 year old that’s hard to take. But, even though a young child’s baseball ambition died face down in the mud that day, another dream was born in its place. I vowed that from that day forth, whatever I did, I would be the best I could. It’s this that spurs me on to be a great designer, to exceed expectations, to hit it out the park, so that one glorious day, when I run into Will Clark again, I can whip out my portfolio and say triumphantly “Hey Will, remember me? No? Err… Ok… Well… Do you need a website designed or anything?”
For me, great design is about simplicity. I am driven to distill ideas down to their purest form. Simplicity is deceptive. It takes time to refine. But, for me it’s worth all the effort.
My passion for perfection filters into one of my other interests — coffee. I know a lot of people say they love coffee. But I’m obsessed with it. I spend an inordinate amount of time experimenting with beans, grinding equipment and brewing methods in my attempt to make the perfect cup of Joe.
If you have any thoughts, questions or recommendations I’d love to hear from you. Especially if your name’s Will Clark.
