Cory Etzkorn

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

I most recently spent 4 years building the brand and design team at Notion ↗︎. Previously, I designed the news at The Wall Street Journal. Prior to that, I led front-end engineering at Fuzzco. 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 am available for contract web development projects starting in January 2024. Let me know if you’d like to work together.
