Brandon with his son, Hudson.

We are pleased to announce that Brandon Rosage (@brosage) has joined Team Ushahidi! He comes on board as a web designer and we couldn’t be more thrilled.

Brandon comes to us with loads of experience. From traditional journalism and publishing all the way to co-founding a local internet broadcast network, Brandon has been building on the web for the past seven years. In addition to that, Brandon is a huge Detroit Tigers fan and enjoys living in Olympia, WA with his wife and their 1-year-old son.

Brandon’s focus at Ushahidi will be to improve the overall design and user experience of our products. He brings a passion for “mobile first” design and as such will be a huge help as we optimize our products for mobile.

As is typical for new team members, Brandon jumped into the fray feet-first spending his first week designing and coding in a cabin in North Georgia with David Kobia, Emmanuel Kala and I… the results of which will hopefully be revealed soon!

Please join us in welcoming Brandon to the team!

Finishing up a week of hacking with some southern BBQ!
