I just uploaded an update to my personal web site after 3 years “I’ll do it later.”

Creating this version was a bit of a struggle for me – not only as a fight against procrastination but trying to figure out what I wanted to “say,” if anything, about myself. The result is something simple and subdued overall with a strong grid layout and a little flair. I’m not really sure what that “says” about me – but I think that it’s fitting for where I am at this point. I also wrote my first bio in over 7 years and took out a lot of old crap from my portfolio. So much of what I’ve done these past 5 years has been code – I have little to show visually.

I created it using my ramen player. There are a few things that I still want to add – like sound effects – but I’ll get around to it later.

Grunge design is back! Yay.

It liiiives. According to Smashing Magazine. Fine by me – as a designer, organic dirty designs are much more fun to create than shiny rectangles with gradients. I got started in design the mid/late 90’s with a huge case of David Carson envy – designing grungy will be like coming home. So sentimental.

At least my old Typography in Decay site is tendy again. No updates needed!

REALLY cool Flash site/gallery

Credit to Jason Merrill for finding this site:

Inspiration. WHITEvoid, an interactive design firm in Berlin, developed a really cool user interface that makes liberal use of real 3D in Flash. You have to experience it to appreciate what I mean.  Check it out at  It gave me some ideas for a portfolio gallery and other uses of 3D for “non-real world object” interactivity.  Oh and if you get a chance, just for fun, check out their “MIDI Gun” on the site.
