Hi, I’m Melanie, a product manager with a design and web-dev background. My core personal mission is to empower people to make interesting, useful, and inclusive things on the web. I’m currently:
- At Netlify, where I help enterprise teams build secure and robust web applications on the Jamstack.
- Contributing to the Open UI Community Group at the W3C, which incubates new web standards unlocking fully customizable HTML controls.
NaggingEncouraging people to blog on their indie websites!
Previously, I helped a music streaming startup (Grooveshark) convert its UI from Flash to HTML; designed and built countless brands and websites at Fuzzco; and joined the Microsoft Edge team as a developer experience designer. I quickly wanted to have more direct impact on the web platform, and made the switch to product management. Over the next few years, I had the opportunity to lead browser and web platform investments across accessibility, trust and privacy, and customizable form controls.
Outside of work, I am a magpie for creative hobbies: I like to draw/paint, sew, knit, and weave. I am also constantly in the middle of 5 different books at once.
I still love a good side project, so if you’d like to collaborate, please send me an email at email@example.com.
