Away

About me. Hobbies include: movies, longform journalism, lists, gum, boxing, LEGO, sincerity, junk food, NBA, journaling, and the color gray.

I tend to think of design as the most personal of things: a way of reaching goals, making decisions, managing relationships, communicating, learning — being intentional as we negotiate our everyday lives. I’ve had some fun as a graphic designer, but many of the most satisfying moments of my life have been in the classroom, watching students learn new things about themselves and each other in the midst of the design process.

I have a Master of Design degree from the University of Washington. As a grad student, I studied design and media literacy in classrooms, and I’m now teaching elementary and middle school technology classes at Charles Wright Academy, which I just really love doing.

Right now, I’m watching Casual⁴ and Bachelor in Paradise, reading Dictionary Stories and Jonah Hex, Vol. 2, and listening to and the This is Not a Conspiracy Theory podcast.

About this site. Rubik is the typeface. I write the pages in Markdown with FoldingText, Hazel uploads them automagically, and then Kirby converts them to HTML. Pretty cool! Link colors generated with randomColor.js.
