Hi, I’m Dustin Senos. Welcome to my personal website. 👋
A goal to enrich peoples’ lives through engineering and design has driven me to create websites and products for more than a decade. I’m spending 2017 exploring opportunities to turn this drive into new products.
Most recently, I was the Head of Design at Medium, a platform where Barack Obama, Tony Hawk, and everyday people share thoughts and stories. Before Medium, I wrote code for Walt Disney and oversaw a small team of engineers building the game engine for Club Penguin, a virtual world inhabited by millions of children.
I’m currently taking on freelance design, product, and prototyping work. If you’d like to work together, please get in touch.
To build skill and gain perspective between full-time jobs I take on projects that are interesting, challenging, or in verticals where I have little experience. Some of the companies I’ve worked with are: The White House, IFTTT, eero, Figure1, Talkshow, LaunchKit, Samsung, Dreamworks, and Feminist Frequency. I also ship personal projects like Out of Office Hours, Wallcat, and LittleIpsum.
I’m active on Twitter and Instagram, and publish longer thoughts on Medium. I have a bit of open source software on Github which I wrote for Twitter and Medium.
