Thanks for reading.
Your host, briefly
I’m a product designer, working out of Northeast Ohio. This site is run out of my own pocket and in my spare time. What it lacks in regularity is hopefully made up for in quality.
Finally, random tidbits I enjoy sharing: energy, diction, and honesty are three great words; have strong opinions, loosely held; waffles are the bar by which all other breakfast foods are judged; and if you want to be a better writer, read everything you can.
I aim to write so you don’t need to skim. Rigorous editing is a cornerstone of this website, and I keep an in-house style guide, which you’re welcome to read and remix. (On the other hand, we have a newborn in the house so my editing will only be as good as I can make it at three in the morning)
Headlines and body copy are set in San Francisco.
This site should look good in all modern web browsers; please let me know if it doesn’t.
Other writers worth reading
I read pretty much everything these folks put out. I update this list every couple of months, so check back from time to time. Have someone that should be on here? Drop me a note. (Updated Feb. 2018)
