Profile #

I’m a designer with over a decade of professional experience. I’ve spent most of that time working at higher education institutions. Today I’m a user interface (UI) designer at a nonprofit member association in Washington, DC.

I’ve been lucky to work with some wonderful artists, musicians, scientists, and writers on design projects, especially interactive stuff. I spent a long time as a generalist and thrive on learning new things.

See what I’m up to now.

I’m married to Eleanor, who makes paintings. We live in New Mexico with our toddler and a small dog.

Previous locations
  • Tennessee (2010 – 2023)
  • Arizona (2004 – 2009)
  • Central New York (1987 – 2003)

About this website #

This is my personal website. I registered the domain name in 2008 and renew it at the end of each year as a small gift to myself. I tinker with this site’s writing, design, and code as I learn new things and feel motivated, mainly during evenings and weekends.

You can track this site’s progress and iterations at this GitHub repo. This site is built with Eleventy and deployed to Netlify. My blog posts are available in both RSS and JSON. I prioritize performance and accessibility. You can read a note on the type to learn about the fonts in use.
