Extra Life for Lurie Children's Hospital

October 23, 2014

This Saturday, starting at 8:00am Central, I'll be playing video games for 24 hours straight to raise money for Extra Life. All proceeds will go to Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago, where my daughter Olivia is being treated. Olivia was born prematurely after just 24 weeks but has received amazing care from the staff of Lurie Children's Hospital. I'm very happy to be able to give something back while doing something I love at the same time.

I'll be streaming live on Twitch all day. Come by and say hello, and please consider donating if you can. Thanks for your support!

I'm Mike Aparicio, Principal Design Systems Engineer at Turquoise Health. I'm interested in helping companies large and small improve collaboration between design and engineering through the use of design systems. I specialize in creating custom CSS frameworks that empower engineering teams to get from concept to production quickly, while writing little to no CSS themselves. I write about web design and development, video games, pop culture, and other things I find interesting. I live in the Chicago area with my wife, three sons, and two dogs.
