about

Me at my desk wearing skull cap and headphones.
I like to make things.

My name is Michael Tribone and I work as a User Interface Designer and Developer for Penn State. I’ve been working for Penn State for almost two decades and have designed and developed web sites, web applications, videos, animations, and illustrations with many hard working and talented individuals. My current work involves Ruby on Rails, Twitter Bootstrap, HTML, and CSS for a Hydra-based institutional repository called ScholarSphere.

I am interested in the interaction of art and code and human experiences. I have a deep interest in programming, illustration, drawing, photography, painting, graphic design, and ceramics. You’ll find all of these interests on my site and on twitter and Pinterest.
