If you’re visiting this site, you are probably wondering about what I’m working on. After leading the design of Firefox Accounts, Sync and other security-related features for seven years, I left Mozilla in May seeking a change and a break. I’m taking the summer off, spending time with family and friends, and learning some new tricks. As I begin my job hunt, I’ll begin sharing more about my experiences. Stay tuned.
Fresh out of school, in January 1995, I became one of Canada’s first gainfully-employed web designers at the pioneering Quarry Communications in Waterloo. My web career led me around the world, through two boom-and-bust cycles, my own startup (and shutdown), and eventually to the first great web browser maker, Mozilla. During recent years my team pushed Sync to the forefront of Firefox by introducing innovative features like Send Tab and Firefox Notes to tens of millions of active daily users.
