I’ve lived in Manhattan for 14 years and in a solar-powered straw-bale house in a cow pasture for one. I’ve travelled in Mexico, India, Finland, and lots of Europe.
What I do
I code, consult, coach, cook and tinker. I make physical, virtual, and social things. I volunteer, share, teach and build community. I have many wide interests and some deep expertise. I love collaborating with passionate people on the best possible projects.
I’m a member of a “MakerSpace” and a social-enterprise focussed Co-Working Space. I love to cook-in and eat-out, ride bikes, build bikes, and take photographs. I garden, ferment things, fill-in at a wine-shop, and bowl a shaky 160.
I was a chapter leader in the Slow Food movement for 12 years, in both New York City and Madison.
I’m an independent software developer and technology consultant by trade, specializing in data-driven web applications for small business. I made my first web-site in 1995, and have been semi-at-it ever since.
I’m a founder and the executive director of FoodWorks Madison, a start-up not-for-profit built to increase social equity in Madison by creating a short-term hands-on training program for kitchen jobs.
I am a managing partner at Working Draft Beer Company, a craft brewery and taproom in Madison, that has just had its first birthday.
