About Me


I've worked in new media and interactive related fields for over fifteen years as a Web designer, developer, project manager, new media department director, freelance consultant, founder and all around "Web guy."

I also have deep involvements in online publishing particularly in the "open-access" academic arena. My single largest and sustained effort was as founder and Editor-in-Chief of Other Voices: The eJournal of Cultural Criticism, an award-winning scholarly publication affiliated with the University of Pennsylvania.

Born in Pennsylvania, I spent my youth in the Pacific Northwest, mostly Washington state and northern Idaho, before returning east for college. Admittedly, I miss the Rockies occasionally—generally whenever it gets hot and humid in Philadelphia which is pretty much each summer.
