Designer — graphic, digital, product Writer, speaker, and event director

This is an evolving rebuild and redesign. This site launched in 2003, and the previous design lasted eight long years. People still seemed to love it, but I've been building this replacement for months. Rather than delay any longer, I deployed the bloody thing in order to accelerate progress.

I need something that better represents who I am and what I'm now concerned with; a simpler build and modest aesthetic that allows me to publish easily and often. This will be that, and it should be ready soon.

Existing in four dimensions

The expansive views from the hard-won summit deserved my full attention, but cognitively I was elsewhere; present in multiple locations by way of a weak but welcome signal.
