Hi, I’m Melanie, a product manager based in Seattle, WA.

I’m currently at Netlify, where I help enable teams to build robust web applications on the Jamstack and accelerate their workflow.

In the past I’ve been a frontend developer at a music startup; a designer and builder of countless brands and websites at Fuzzco; and a product manager on the Microsoft Edge browser. With my collaborators in Microsoft and across W3C standards membership, I led on the future of web technologies—with special focus in accessibility, privacy, CSS, and HTML control customization.

I’m a maker at heart, so my core personal mission is to empower people to make interesting, useful, and inclusive things on the web.

Let’s talk hobbies

Fiber crafts

I sew, weave, and knit, and post my makes on my fiber blog.

An array of Posca pens above an open sketchbook where I've swatched them out

Drawing

Learning to let go of the vision in my head and just have fun with it.

Mount Rainier poking out between pine trees

Hiking

Luckily for me there are hundreds of trails in the state of Washington.

Reading a book outside in the sunshine

Reading

I always seem to end up in the middle of 5 books at once.
