Cory Etzkorn

Hi, I’m Cory — a designer and software engineer with 15+ years of experience. Originally from Minneapolis, I currently reside in Brooklyn. I care about form and function and believe in the power of simplicity.

I currently spend my days designing tools for thought at Notion ↗︎. Previously, I designed the news at The Wall Street Journal. Prior to that, I led front-end engineering at Fuzzco and Ghostly Ferns. In 2016, I founded Hendrix, a social network for musicians.

After hours, I teach power vinyasa yoga and take long baths. Once upon a time, I was a Hawaiian coffee farmer. Writing JavaScript is almost as thrilling.

I’m always interested in new ideas and perspectives. I’d love to meet you IRL and talk more about the WWW. Thanks for stopping by.
