About Mo

Just call her Mo, because her first name looks hard to pronounce (FYI: "mo-reen"). She is a senior interaction designer with Red Hat, Inc. who comes from a varied background - computer science, human computer interaction, visual design, and communication. Vices include Battlestar Galactica, Final Fantasy, Hello Kitty, and Inkscape. (Note: WarrenTogami is resposible for the first two, and he feeds the third. Hmm!) She can be observed in the wild in the vicinity of this guy, Ray, her long-term boyfriend , most likely in the Greater Boston Area.

She and WarrenTogami started fedora-art-list in April 2006, and she is the team lead of the Fedora art team . Development-wise, Mo's contributed interaction design to a number of applications that are part of Fedora, such as virt-manager, system-config-auth, and the anaconda installer.

Mo is interested in mentoring anyone who would like help with interaction design / usability, visual design (icons, themes, etc.), marketing/branding issues, and bug triaging/fixing. She's also especially interested in mentoring other women. If you have hints or tips on beating the boss on level 80 of Via Infinito in FF-X2, her inbox is ALWAYS open.

What I'm Working On Now

  • Fedora Badges - making badge artwork and trying to get physical badges made too!
