Liferay West Coast Symposium 2009

My name is Nate Cavanaugh. I’m a designer with developer proclivities, a developer with a design background, sometimes both, sometimes not much of either.

I’m 30 years old, married to a wonderful woman and my best friend, and enjoying the joys of marriage.

I’m fairly reclusive, but I’m hoping that changes soon. If nothing else, I hope I update this old blog a bit more frequently.

I work for Liferay, an enterprise open source portal/social collaboration system. I’m currently the Director of UI Engineering, and get the privilege of working with smarter, cooler people than me.

I love hanging out with my wife, the beach, driving with my windows down, reading, drawing, debating, listening to music, and watching movies. I love developing, creating stuff, and good conversation.

I hate parties, small talk, and life’s little inefficiencies.
