Hey there, folks.
I’m Mel Choyce, a user interface designer and sometimes-artist living and working in Boston.
As of version 3.5, I’m a WordPress core contributor and a member of the UI group. It was my first time contributing to WordPress, and I’m hooked! I’m hoping to play a bigger role in contributing in the future.
But wait, I also have non-design hobbies!
I’m a gamer. I grew up playing JRPGs on my SNES, then PSX, alongside Mario Kart, Smash Bros, Wave Race, and other awesome N64 games.
I’m also a huge sci-fi/fantasy nerd: some of my favorite childhood memories are of watching Hercules with my dad. I read a lot of young adult fiction (despite my growing age!) and am a huge fan of Tamora Pierce. I have somewhat hidden aspirations of one day publishing my own young adult novel.
