A Quick Word About This Site

My portfolio was built on a WordPress Twenty Fifteen theme, with a whole lot of CSS jiggering, including new fonts, hidden box-shadows, custom grids, and obsessive compulsive margin adjustments.

Nice to meet you.

Please allow me to introduce myself.

In the simplest sense, I write, I need more sleep, I eat fried chicken, and I can’t help myself. Besides that, I hike, run, swim, and occasionally worry about how I would save my old comic book collection if my house ever caught on fire.

Throughout my first decade as a working professional, I helped manage the largest online community of car enthusiasts in the world, served as content manager of a failed startup, and wrote practically every consonant and vowel of copy for a software company during its hypergrowth — punctuation came later.

Most recently, I led the editorial side of a digital publication I co-created at Bluebeam, Inc. called BREAKGROUND (for iOS and web if you’re interested). It didn’t change the world, but I hope it added to it in some way.

The magazine challenged me to become more than a writer by giving me a taste of ownership, which always leads to wearing more hats. I needed to become a managing editor to ensure a steady stream of content, especially when the man in the mirror could not and should not write every article. I needed to become a web content manager to transport content built exclusively for mobile apps seamlessly (almost) to the web in all its HTML5, CSS, and JS glory. And since the magazine had so little to do with the core business of the company that funded it, I had to learn how to position and explain the value of a publication to a software company.

These are the skills, knowledge, and experience I’ve developed over the years. I hesitate to call any of it talent; that is for you to decide. Thank you for taking the time to read this little tour of myself. If you haven’t had a chance to look at any of my work, I invite you to glance, scowl, admonish, and enjoy some of it at your leisure.
