Hi my name is Jake Dahn, and I started Hyperbole Design in 2005 as a way to further my skills in design. Since then, as the web has evolved, my main focus has switched mostly to web development and programming.
In 2010 I started working with AnsoLabs on NASA's Nebula Project, as an interface designer and developer. Much of my work has been open sourced and I have hopes that it will become a first class citizen of the OpenStack project. If you would like to see some of my other open source projects you should check out my Github account.
I've created this portfolio as a way to showcase some of my favorite projects, or at least the ones I've had the most fun working on. If you would like to work with me, please feel free to drop me a line via the contact form below.
