This is a future space for longer-format ruminations on design, culture, media, politics, and art. There's nothing like that here yet.
I publish an email newsletter in a similar vein. It's comprised of collected links from around the web—stuff that I find interesting, culled from my Twitter favorites, Instapaper queue (good lord), and other sources.
I work as a UX, visual, and front-end designer. Currently I'm working full-time at C-leveled in Pittsburgh, PA, helping small business owners and nonprofits with creative services and user-centered design. If you have an interface design, branding & identity, or web project, we should talk.
- I worked on Rhiza from 2013 to mid-2015. Rhiza is a data analytics and visualization webapp used by media companies and advertisers to slice and dice demographic and psychographic information in syndicated surveys, polls, and other market research data. I designed interfaces that helped our users articulate their points of view with data.
- From 2012 to 2014, I helped Winchester Thurston School launch a comprehensive cirruculum showcase of their City as Our Campus program. The site is the end product of interviews with faculty and students, collaborations with program administrators, and a creative concept that effectively communicates the intention of the program and a replication toolkit for other urban educators.
- I've made some logos for local craft businesses like an apiarist, a finish carpenter, and a bicycle framebuilder.
- I was fairly active in the burgeoning "digital art" movement of the early-2000s. Along with my partner Jason, I ran Phirebrush, a curated Web 'zine and artist community, from 2001 to about 2008.
- I've never gone viral, but I helped with the "brute-force takeover" of a New Yorker cartoon caption in 2015.
- In mid-2013, I was working at an ad agency and a restaurant moved into the space below us, serving absurdly complicated entrées as daily lunch specials. I made a stupid lunch special generator that gained some notoriety.
