About

I don’t go by G, surprisingly.

I’m Lucas, a UX designer and generally nerdy gent from Baltimore.

Lucas' Face

Professionally:

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.)

Personally:

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, playing games, and forming strong opinions. I live with my wonderful wife Katie, our daughter Ayla, and a trio of pet rats named Ellie, Monk, and Mulder (Yes, rats. They’re wonderful. Yes, the tails are gross. No, I don’t want to touch a city rat.)

I have a penchant for raw materials, especially cherry wood. 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. I’ll probably have a spreadsheet to show you. (Right now it’s (Still!) Hearthstone and also a Minecraft server I run for my nephew)

Contact:

I’m available for mentorship requests and general chatting. I’m terrible at Twitter, but you can find me on there @glucasroe. Emails can be sent to lucas@this domain. Sorry about the dumb email masking, but the spam is getting nuts. Love letters are inadvisable.
