Hello world, my name is Jen Simmons. I’m the creator and host of The Web Ahead, a popular weekly radio show about the future of the web. I speak at conferences, design web-based products for clients, and advise projects on where things are going.

I live and work in Brooklyn New York, traveling to the woods to climb a mountain or paddle a kayak just as often as I can. Usually with my dog, Maggie.
