I'm Mike Aparicio, a.k.a. Peruvian Idol. I'm a Chicago-based UI developer currently focused on Design Systems. I write about web design and development, video games, pop culture, basketball, and other things I find interesting.
Thanks for stopping by!
After a long career as a company "web guy," I joined Groupon in 2011, where I built our in-house CSS frameworks and currently work on our Design System as a Senior UI Engineer. I enjoy helping companies improve their process and collaboration between design and engineering.
Someday I'll get around to adding a portfolio with examples of my work!
