About


Background

After growing up in southern Maine (the first 18 years) I settled in Upstate New York. In 2004 after graduating with a BFA in visual arts I immediately began practicing graphic design. By the summer of 2005 I became one-half of a tiny design company called Sharktooth Creative with my friend Renee. We designed identities, created and maintained Flash sites, and recorded music in our spare time as Jetsetter.

Since then I've worked as a lead designer at various companies – including a brewery – while maintaining a decent freelance career, picking up type design along the way. I served on the board of a local non-profit and occasionally lecture at Ithaca College. In recent years I've doubled-down on my open source contributions and find pushing work to Github more rewarding than client or product work.

Personal

I’m a dad, husband, and my dog’s third best friend. I love board games so so I made one. I run outside all year and drink too much coffee. I'm very slowly working on a novel that might be terrible. This year I started recording and giving away a song every seven days as my first 52 week project. I sometimes tweet.

Music

Speaking of music, I have a few releases:
Spotify, Pandora, Amazon, & Apple Music


Meta

I'm powering this site via Kirby (v2, which I think is better than v3) and setting most of the type in the beautiful open source Fraunces.
