About

Me

This site used to be primarily a portfolio site, but I don't really love putting myself "out there" unless I'm actually searching for a job. I have a mixed relationship with software these days. So I'm maintaining my blog.

My travels have taken me from Pittsburgh to Detroit to Austin and now to Eugene. I've worked at agencies, web shops, software and data companies that served enterprise, small business, education, and automotive customers.

On the side, along with a couple other people, I have built mobile apps and successful job-search applications.

Outside of software, my primary jobs are Dad and Husband.

I play music, currently in Various Reasons, most recently in An Empty Room. I also record small artists and bands for fun.

This site

  • Content is managed by Kirby CMS, a no-database PHP system that's really just plain great. I've been trying to reduce the amount of technology I need for anything, but Kirby remains my favorite.
  • CSS is written in Sass and structured using BEM methodology.
  • Grid is managed by Jeet, a grid-only system that I love.
  • Fonts are Playfair and Open Sans, regrettably served from Google.
