Hi, I'm Caleb

I design for humans, advocate for web standards, fight for the user, and share my process along the way.
Over the years, I've worked with startups, agencies, and as a freelancer, with major brands and labels to move progressive ideas forward.
I live in Palo Alto, CA with my amazing wife, and pet hedgehog (scootch; she hates people).
Below is my sandbox of projects and sites. See my work.
