I grew up in southern Maine, a 400+ mile drive from my current location in central New York where I live with my wife and son. When I’m not creating typefaces I find myself designing other materials, writing music, or taking photos/videos. I’ve made a lot of different things that I’m proud of – a card game, iPhone apps, bird feeders, a brewery brand overhaul, ambient music, even home movies – and you can explore those and more at /work.

Most of my technical abilities are self-taught, learning by way of trial and error. I take inspiration from friends, music, and the physical world more than anything else, and I try to not leave home without a camera (currently an Olympus OM-D E-M5). I’m easy to reach by email. Select typefaces that I’ve created are also available on MyFontsYou Work For Them, and The League of Moveable Type. If you’ve obtained one of my fonts from anywhere else (including DaFont or FontSquirrel) you probably have an outdated copy, as I’m always making improvements on open source projects, even ones that are 5+ years old.

I’m @finck on Twitter, @typeler on Instagram, and @sursly on Github.
