This here is a post about my residency at the Sou’Wester in Seaview Washington in January 2019. I just spend two and a half years busting my ass with VergePDX. I was curating art at the Red Fox, Akemi Salon, Flickerbox, Inc., and both of the Joinery locations in SE and SW Portland, Oregon. It […]
In my PSU class I’ve got several students who want to use licensed fonts. They are students, so purchasing licenses just isn’t an option. So I’ve found some handy resources for finding close replacements for fonts as well as some handy links for font pairing recommendations. Futura recommended web font replacements The website: What is […]

I was a little afraid, and probably still am a little, with Moby Dick, but the pictures [are] essentially curved surfaces. They started to really move, and the novel moves; you’re going around the world, it’s pretty wet, there […]
I’m having too much fun with Scratch. I just started this dinosaur chomping apple game. Need to add some dangerous objects to avoid and maybe a winning score. For now, time for bed.
Back in November I’d done some research on kids coding apps. I made a scratch account but wound up playing more with Scratch Jr. on the iPad with my daughter.. I’ve been spending more time with it and I’m having a blast just goofing off. Here’s my sweet dance moves:
If I’ve learned anything from software development, it’s that the only way to make sure something is really strong is to spend a whole bunch of time finding out where it breaks and make it stop breaking. This is a sentiment I understand pretty deeply on a personal level. I like to see how far I can […]
What a wild ride it’s been. I left my job at PNCA at the end of June 2016. I had a glorious summer with my daughter — the first one we’d had together since I started grad school in 2013. I also biked a bunch and enjoyed the sunshine. Starting in the fall I went […]

I went with Signal Fire on a one week backpacking trip to the Lost Creek Wilderness in Colorado. We found the creek! 🙂 and it was beautiful.
Today’s bug of the day “Eristalis Arbustorum.” Looks like a bee, is a great pollinator, but it only has two wings, so… it’s a fly! They are often called hover flies or drone flies. Thats a great way to tell the difference, there are a great many flies out there acting like bees. They are […]

I wrote this last year on the Signal Fire trip to Northern Arizona in Speing 2015: The sun is going down and the vibrant sages and oranges of the canyon and brush are slowly changing to soothing greys. It is so quiet here. I feel like my head is the loudest sound in this canyon. […]
