INTERESTS / ABOUT ME
I celebrate finding beauty in the details, in the abstract and in unexpected places.
My mind is a repository of some the most obtuse trivia imaginable. It is also my sincerest belief that truly fiery
hot sauce should be recognized as an essential food group.
I have a passionate inclination and knack for making tools work; whether it is a paintbrush, a pencil, or software,
a gadget , a hack, or a technology – or a medium.
I enjoy cooking, home renovations, but most of all spending quality time with my kids.
