As some of you may know I have been running around San Francisco on and off the past 2 months. As my internship at JPL sadly comes to an end, I had set up several interviews with various companies through the help of the Art Center Alumni network, very good friends and family members. I’ve had a great time and tons of support and after much careful thought I have accepted an offer from Frog Design in San Francisco. This feels like the NBA Draft or something haha.
My official position will be Interaction Designer. I’m Excited. So what does this mean for the QUEST to Google? It will still be on going, I’ve met some very nice people within Google who have me on the radar. However I believe Frog will be a very good step for me towards the future. This blog will continue and so will the journey.

Please help by going to this link or clicking the photo below once everyday. Thank you for all your continued support. Vote Here
Thank you to all my family and friends who have been with me through school and all the craziness that came with it. With your continued support my interviews have been going great. I continue to network and network and meet new people in the industry and it has helped me get in many doors of companies I only dreamed of getting to talk to. I wasn’t qualified for all of them but it was great to just speak with some of these very talented companies. Thank you again and again. Now the waiting game begins.
We live blogged the Google I/O keynote on Wednesday where major announcements were made, including the launch of the Google Chromebook computers manufactured by Samsung and Acer that will be available June 15 in the US for $449 (Samsung WiFi version), $499 (Samsung WiFi+3G version) and $349 (Acer).
“The future is on the web”…”in a browser”, Google says, so the search giant is bringing its dream to the market in the form of the Chromebook.
For those who did not follow the Google computer story, since the beta model codenamed CR-48 launched last year, here is the deal: the Chromebook runs the Chrome OS and users have access to data and applications only from the web via the Chrome Browser. Google claims that this new “computing model” enables a higher level of security, since users do not have to install anti-viruses, instead relying on web services and Google “multi-layers” security including sandboxing, data encryption, and verified boot, features that were in the CR-48, go to this page and this page to get a detailed overview.
I wanted to change the way people grabbed my business cards at my grad show, so when visitors reached for a card off my table they were in for a little surprise. Thanks to the guys and gals at Evil Mad Science I was able to put together this interactive LED panel that uses sensors to detect changes in light value.

It’s been an interesting process, I get a lot of questions about the logo. If you were trying to guess what the drops in the logo were and you guessed drops of ink, you would be correct.
