I’ve lived all over the US, finding solitude amidst the chaos of cities and chaos in the solitude of nature. I’m a maker, a thinker and a doer who’s been involved in community events, civic beautification and placemaking efforts. I spend my free time wandering the streets, finding beauty in seemingly mundane minutiae, learning my community on the granular level. No matter where I am, I’m firmly rooted.
Way back when, I was profiled in the New York Times and on the long-forgotten TV show Internet Tonight [I’ve got this on VHS if anyone’s curious]. My work appears in the books Lettering and Type: Creating Letters and Designing Typefaces, Just Design: Socially Conscious Design for Critical Causes, Guide to Graphic Design, 365 Habits of Successful Graphic Designers, 100 Habits of Successful Publication Designers, Indie Publishing: How to Design and Publish Your Own Book, The Typographic Universe: Letterforms Found in Nature, the Built World and Human Imagination, and The Designer as…: Author, Producer, Activist, Entrepreneur, Curator, and Collaborator: New Models for Communicating. I’ve also discussed ghost signs on WVXU and inventory management on MSNBC’s Your Business, and my possibly fictional gallery was profiled in CityBeat.
Oh, and also? A cantankerous charmer. Pacifist anarchist. Misanthropic socialite. I’m pretty sure you should follow my pretty nonsense on Instagram, because I’m the fun friend you just haven’t made yet.
