Henry Bley-Vroman

Development - Graphics - Design

Originally from Hawaii, I studied cognitive science in college in Southern California and in graduate school in Boston. I moved on from that career —and that cold weather— to work in new media, first in the San Francisco Bay Area and now in North Carolina. My focus is front-end development, and I have decades of experience in graphic design and photo editing. Side interests include the visual presentation of data, team dynamics, cognitive development, and systems of notating folk music ornamentation. I enjoy thinking about products as actual products of real people, and enjoy solving process puzzles with that literal "human resources" nature in mind.
