Hi. I'm Verdi. I’m a product designer at Mozilla where I work on Firefox.
I’ve had a ton of past lives including: nuclear sub engineer, performance/video/theater artist, high school media teacher, and professional machinima director.
I was also part of the small group of people making vlogging happen before YouTube was around.
Two years ago I got it in my head that I wanted to make games. Well, not real game games. More like art/vlog/performance/game mashups. Wish me luck.
Yesterday I used Twine to prototype a small part of the game I'm working on. As part of that I added a tiny bit of css to make it fit better on a phone - https://gist.github.com/Verdi/6ed68f3d4b891ec69402dffc9dbedac8 and I created a Bandersnatch-like timer https://gist.github.com/Verdi/c04f379322fbcd789767e57f92af957f
Check them out if you make things with Twine. And see it in action with my little prototype https://dreamhouse.forsale/test/
the last photograph i took during daylight in 2018, as the sun slipped towards the waves just beyond the westernmost point on the island of oahu, hawaii. my parents stood nearby while i clambered down the rocks with my hasselblad.
it gets cold so quickly when we spin beyond the reach of the sun.

Y’all. I’m going to see Peter Murphy and David J play this tonight. https://youtu.be/s_RCwyYp3Lg 16yr old me exploded when I first heard that song.
And, we done. A surprisingly capable paper! No plan and intended to make a muddy mess. The first page of any new sketchbook is always me just throwing everything I can at it, and layering and scrubbing. It held up, and didn’t lift when I layered— a preference that is surprisingly hard to find in more cost efficient papers. I’m gonna enjoy keeping this one!
