When work was thin, I worked in textbooks. I spent three years pouring manuscript into templates and styling the text. I set and reset thousands of pages of text. The work was dull and repetitive and nothing made it tolerable. Still, I came to appreciate the value of carefully considered style sheets and clear, restrained markup.
With the front-end as a focus, I’m comfortable jumping in wherever there’s need, from graphic and UI design to LAMP and Rails development.
Besides serving a handful of freelance clients, I’ve worked in-house for Chicago’s Designkitchen, VSA Partners, and One Design Company.

I believe the tools we develop should address practical problems, just as bridges address the problem of rivers. There’s an end to my work. I’m satisfied with that end.
