I was a frontend developer for iGoogle, Google's personalized homepage (22.5 million users and 20% of all visits to Google's homepage in 2008) and Google Gadgets. I designed and wrote some of iGoogle's most popular apps (millions of users). I worked closely with business partners including CBS, NY Times, Sports Illustrated, Entertainment Weekly, and more in designing and developing apps for iGoogle. In addition to engineering, I worked closely with the user experience team to design many of iGoogle's main features, such as themes, as well as on iGoogle's redesign.
I gave many talks on the Google Gadget API in Japan, Seoul, London, and the United States. In particular, I presented at Google Developer Day in Tokyo and Google Developer Night in Seoul.
I won Google's prestigious EMG (Executive Management Group) Impact Award for outstanding innovation on iGoogle in 2008.
