I’ve been making websites for work for nearly a decade (and almost twice as long for fun).
Over the last several years, I’ve worked primarily with clients in the fields of education and art. I’m a generalist who enjoys working across disciplines to see a project through from end-to-end.
In addition to web design, I’m experienced in print design and production. I recently designed a 400-page book on Nordic Larp, and helped start a risograph press in Brooklyn.
My week is split about half-and-half: when I’m not working on design/development projects, I’m a working artist. I currently teach at The Cooper Union as a visiting artist in the School of Art, recently exhibited in the Whitney Biennial, and was a 2015-17 Fellow at the Vera List Center for Art and Politics at The New School.
My writing on design and technology has been published at Rhizome and Poool. I’ve participated in Triple Canopy’s networked publishing intensive and the New School Publishing Institute. I helped start the School for Poetic Computation, as its first administrator, experimenting with open-source finances.

What is so compelling about this pile of rocks that would inspire me to look at this picture so many times on any given day? (This is the "Monument to Finnish Sisu.")
Sisu is a word from the Finnish language that is “ekphrastically untranslatable*.”
It stands for a combination of resilience, determination, making a plan and sticking to it, and continuing on against the odds. Like "grit" or equanimity but — I love this part — with a “grimmer quality of stress management.”
