Cassidy James Blaede

I’m a UX architect who designs and builds useful, usable, and delightful digital products using open technologies.

Code & Collaboration

I strive to collaborate with open source projects as much as possible, and share what I work on under free and open licenses.

Writing & Social

I write things on the internet about UX, tech, and what I’m up to. I usually share these things on social media.

I take photos of my adventures (and my cat), mostly with my Pixel phone and Moment lenses.

I play games when I can find the time. Usually Destiny 2 on PS5, but occasionally other games on Stadia, Switch, Steam, Android, and my GamePi.
