I don’t go by G, surprisingly.
I’m Lucas, a UX designer and nerd from Baltimore.
I try to be as broad as possible. I went to school for Design while working as a Front End Developer, and jumped into UX directly after graduating.
I currently work at Fastspot in Hampden, which is literally my favorite company in Baltimore, so I’m pretty happy. (Sorry recruiters, this means I’m not looking for work.) However, I also have a resume that you can read if you’d like.
I have a revolving door of obsessions, so I spend a lot of time cooking, playing piano, practicing calligraphy, reading the whole internet, fixing things, building things, woodworking, playing games, and running all over. I live with my wonderful wife Katie and our daughter Ayla in a highly renovated and extended upon log cabin from the 1800’s. Not a joke.
I have a penchant for raw materials, especially cherry wood and leather. Vacations are typically to the mountains or the ocean or a place with rollercoasters. I dance enthusiastically but with questionable ability. I’m really trying to be a morning person.
Also, if you want an earful, ask me at any time what game I’m playing. It’s mostly Hearthstone and a smattering of vintage and indy games you don’t want to hear about.
I’m available for mentorship requests and general chatting. I’m terrible at Twitter, but you can find me on there @glucasroe—although calling it professional would be a stretch. Emails can be sent to
firstname.lastname@example.org, but be forewarned as my spam filter is effecient and uncaring.
