About


Personally

I’m a dad, husband, and my dog’s best friend. I live in a tiny town outside of Ithaca, New York. I run about 30 hilly miles each week. Sometimes I have a beard, sometimes I don't. My wife and I are learning how to take care of our few acres of land as sustainably as possible. Our house is 170+ years old, but as of 2018 is 100% solar powered. Our chickens roam free all day🤞

Professionally

I run the small, independent font foundry Etcetera Type Co. I’ve had a lot of fun making variety of things over the past 13 years – a party game, brand identities, fonts, iPhone apps, laser cut products, a brewery redesign, websites, photography, videos, even ambient music. I contribute to open source projects on Github when I can. I've given conference talks and college lectures and am happy to share what I know. Email me about availability for commissioned typefaces, photography, brand identity work, design consulting, and speaking engagements.

This Site

I find coding therapeutic most of the time. This site is a Kirby theme I’ve created, and plan to release once I feel like it is solid. The type is set in a work-in-progress tri-space variable font (not monospace, not duo-space) forked from the open source monospace font I made, League Mono.
