I’m never sure how to describe my profession, so here goes: I use design, writing, and code to create digital experiences.

I build HV Talentbase, the online creative network for the Hudson Valley.

I’m currently the Lead Designer at Agrilyst, where we help indoor farmers manage their facilities and understand their data better. If you’ve heard of us, it’s probably from the coverage after we won TechCrunch Disrupt in 2015.

I also edit the #TechForAll column at the Poughkeepsie Journal.

I helped build the first iteration of Playbook, a place for designers to ask questions and get quality answers from industry luminaries.

I was the managing editor of The Industry, a now-defunct digital publication that helped pioneer design-oriented coverage of the startup scene. The Industry is currently on hiatus.

I live in the Hudson Valley, the beautiful 100-mile corridor just north of New York City. In addition to the incredible landscape and one of the most renowned food scenes on the planet, we’ve got a burgeoning tech scene.

In the summer, I’m the stadium announcer for Stockade FC, the semi-pro soccer team started by Foursquare founder Dennis Crowley. Here’s a video about it.

I’m a Christian. That doesn’t mean I think I’m perfect; it means I believe Jesus died so I wouldn’t have to be. This is a loaded subject, but please feel free to ask me if you have any questions (even and including “Why in the world would you be a Christian!?”). I won’t preach at you. Yes, I believe in science. No, I don’t hate anybody.

I think a person’s hobbies say more about them than their career. So, it might be helpful for you to know that I enjoy: reading (a lot), cooking, going to museums, dominating at Mario Kart, dabbling in screenwriting, and doing stand-up comedy (just once, but I keep telling myself I’ll do it again).
