I like to create wonderful user experiences
and have been a full-stack web developer
for over a decade.
I hold the crazy belief that technology should be reliable, beautiful, intuitive, and empowering.
Currently I am a front-end web developer in San Francisco.
I also write here on AlanHogan.com from time to time.
My blog has a loose focus on
web development, user experience, and digital technology.
