Our Dear Geno

March 26, 2023

Our hearts are broken. On Thursday night our beloved dog, Geno, passed away. He had been sick for a few months but the last couple of weeks really took their toll on him.

Gee-Gee was the best guard dog, an eager snuggler, incredibly patient and gentle with the kids, and integral part of our family. We love him and miss him so much.

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 a dog.
