What I’m Doing Now

🏠 We moved!

After almost 4 years in the small town of Snohomish, we moved our family into a bigger house in Lynnwood, halfway closer to Seattle. We've been acclimating the kids, connecting with friends, painting, doing large exterior projects, and are now replacing carpet floor.

And yet, we'll be home-bound again while the state of Washington attempts to slow the spread of COVID-19. It's frustrating that the holidays are going to look different this year with all the government restrictions on gatherings, travel, and entertainment, but it should yield more family connection and time for home improvement.

📖 Reading

I love reading and connecting over books. I’ve been meeting monthly with a small book club (me and two friends) to try to finish more books.

I’m currently reading:

💻 UI Development

I’m at Microsoft working on a UI library of controls and components for use on the home and store pages of microsoft.com. It’s been a lesson “back to the basics” writing plain old JavaScript, HTML, and CSS, along with a Handlebars documentation site. I’d like to return to React and more app-level development again, but spending time with libraries at the lowest level forces me to go deeper on the essentials, accessibility, versioning, and other critical considerations of web development.
