Dan Turner (@ddt ) is currently a freelance-but-looking interaction designer and journalist. After a decade writing for publications ranging including Salon, the New York Times, I.D., Technology Review, MacWEEK, Nerve, Feed, and others, he took a left turn at the School of Information at UC Berkeley and dove into the world of user experience design. He finds the fields dovetail in that they both aim to first serve the user. In addition to redesigning sites and apps for large and small companies, he remains active in the public good field, helping at hackathons, volunteering with Open Oakland, and mentoring at Code for America. Collaboration, fact-checking, and learning are some of his favorite things, so please inquire within.
