I’ve been involved with the web since my undergraduate days at Sarah Lawrence College, where I studied writing, art, and what was then charmingly called “theory of new media.” After college, I worked for a while in publishing as a web editor, which in the early aughts meant a wide and often bewildering set of responsibilities. The companies I worked for fizzled when the dot-com bubble burst and after a dizzying spin through an agency, I landed at Barnes & Noble publishing before striking out on my own as a freelancer. I have been working independently for about ten years now.

My love for the web is related to my love for photography and fanzines. It’s got a low barrier to entry, it encourages collaboration, it rewards late nights and deep digs; it’s young, it’s art, it’s history.

I’m actively seeking design research projects for 2015. Got something interesting going on? Let’s talk.

Here's a picture of me with some chard at my local CSA, Caretaker Farm. I like vegetables.
