About me

Some rapid fire facts... I’m a 90s kid who memorised the Pokédex before I knew how to read. Travel is a huge part of my life and I've been to over 50 countries. I would say that I love to cook, but it’s probably more accurate to say that I love to eat. I’ve been vegan for about 8 years, but occasionally will eat dairy if I'm traveling overseas. I love my sport; I’m a lifelong St George Illawarra Dragons fan (pray for me), a sucker for all things Seattle, a card-carrying tifoso (with a soft sport for Daniel Ricciardo of course), and a fervent supporter of our Australian national teams.

I’m currently studying a Master of Teaching (Secondary) at UNSW. I’ve always wanted to be a teacher, and now I’m finally doing it. I’ll be teaching English and Society & Culture, two subjects that are close to my heart and that I believe have a lot to offer young people.

For the last 9 years or so I’ve worked in tech in various roles at the intersection of development and design. At various times I’ve been called a software engineer, a design technologist, a product designer, and more. I have a strong background in design systems and spent a lot of my tech career building them, scaling them and maintaining them. Most recently I’ve spent almost 4 years working on the Atlassian Design System with a bunch of really clever people.

I live in sunny Sydney, Australia with my beautiful partner and my two cats, Luna and Boof. My little home means everything to me.

About this site

In past incarnations jacklorusso.com has been more of a portfolio, or a glorified business card. Now, it’s an old-school blog. Somewhere for me to jam on things I’m interested in and share my recos.
