🚩 This website is undergoing an open redesign, so if anything looks [not deliberately] wonky, that’s why.

Profile #

I am a public sector communication designer with over a decade of professional experience. Most of my day is spent designing, building and maintaining websites at a large public university.

I also occasionally contribute pixels, code, and CMS know-how for small projects, independent artists and other worthy causes. I’m married to Eleanor, who makes paintings. We live in Knoxville with Zelda, our dog.

See what I’m up to now.

About this Website #

This is my personal website and blog. Like most websites, this one is perpetually under development. You can track its progress at this GitHub repo. I build and deploy this with Eleventy and Netlify, and I am prioritizing performance and accessibility. For those interested in digging deeper, I’m writing a series of posts as I fine tune the design and tech behind the site.
