I am committed to creating online experiences that are accessible to all. I am committed to listening to and learning from you when I miss that mark.

I continue to learn about inclusive design and writing, universal design principles, and accessibility methods and tools. I want to make sure everyone can read, learn, and interact with content I put into the world.

I will make mistakes and you will find issues. Please report them.

If you have time, I’d love to speak with you about your experience.

I commit to making the changes necessary to continue my journey into designing solutions for every human.

Cheers,
Duce
