I’m addicted to making things. Like this font. My early career involved designing websites in Flash and evolved considerably. I’ve created a board game*, rebranded and marketed a brewery*, and run an open source type foundry*. I hold a BFA in Film / Photography / Visual Arts from Ithaca College, just a few miles from where I live today. I have produced work for Google, Chronicle Books, NBC Universal, AT&T, and The Planetary Society.
I’ve made upstate New York my adopted home. Here’s a blog post about what we’ve done with our 1.5 acres. I record music as Adventureson and am releasing a song a week this year. I code websites for fun (like this one). I try to return to my childhood home of Maine every August. I’ve driven across the United States, twice and only broke down once. I spent a month in India during my early 20s and I still think about thali and chai (the real stuff). I’m working on my first novel, it’s about living forever, kind of.
I have three kids, which is still hard for me to believe. My wife and I occasionally make other cool stuff. I used to run a lot. I still eat like I run a lot. I roast sweet potatoes about three nights a week. My dog’s name is Yoshi. I lived and worked in LA for one summer and am now immortalized on film driving through the last shot of a ridiculous movie. I have a short but growing list of albums that I believe to be perfect. Want to know what they are, or work together, or chat? Just send me an email.
