Now

Developing skill through doing, guiltlessly exploring passion and interests, imbuing quality. Mindful that “everything around me is someone’s life work.

All I do is build websites, all I want to do is build websites. Typography, motion design, copywriting, performance—the web is an endless medium of opportunity and creativity of which I’ve only scratched the surface.

Enjoying deep, dark, boring dance music—songs that set the pace in the first ten seconds and maintain it for the next ten minutes. Deep is a curation of my favorites. Tony’s Deep Sets, Deep Space House, and All Day I Dream are daily mixes.

Soothed by the inherent energy of drum and bass—Drum has my favorites.
