Intro to me

Hello world. I'm Jen Simmons, a professional designer who started in theater, added print, dabbled in film, and landed firmly on the web. You might know me from The Web Ahead, my weekly podcast about changing technologies and the future of the web. I speak at many conferences, sometimes write things, and hike up mountains with my dog as often as I can.
