Philosophically my goal is to help people find joy, order, and beauty through technology. This manifests itself in deeply held convictions about programming, URLs, user interfaces (I’m a hit at parties).
During my day job I work for NewFoundry as a Software Engineer. Our team of strategists, designers, and engineers work closely together to help our clients succeed. It’s a stellar team that does high quality work and I’m lucky to be a part of it.
Before NewFoundry I used to make websites for small law firms with The Modern Firm. While there I was the Creative Director and Web Architect and I’m extraordinarily proud of how we solved our client’s marketing needs. If you’re a lawyer looking to grow your business you should contact them and take their advice.
I’m also a cofounder of Scope Creep Studios, an independent videogame studio. We make simple and approachable games that make you think. I help out there with development (primarily in C#) and design.
In other lives I did photography work under the auspices of Yes! Photo with my wonderful wife, Betsy. We now mostly stick to instagram and occasional fun photo shoots. If you’re looking for a photographer in the area reach out to me for a recommendation.
I also used to be a maintainer at Workantile, a coworking community in downtown Ann Arbor. I’m not there much lately, but if you’re looking for a way to get out of your home office or a coffeeshop you should check them out. It’s a wonderful community.
In 2019 I started a podcast with Andy Rau called Roll For Topic. Each week we talk about a topic chosen by rolling on our d10 table of topics.
In mid-2018 I edited and published the Ypsi-Arbor Gazette D&D Gazette.
In December 2018 I published A Christmas One Shot: Marley’s Scrooge Case.
