Hello

I’m glad you’re here.

Scroll down for the “about” kind of stuff including how I work toward making art (every day), how I like making things (especially out of other things), a brief bit about Sunset Grove (where we live in Boise), and finally the professional/career overview.

The poetry and writing page is really more interesting.

Oh, and I try and keep up a blog too.

Art

I don’t understand how it works. All I know is that it can’t happen unless I show up every day, with a pen in my hand and this notebook open on a flat surface, and start writing. I consider myself a writer, a poet, who uses language, music, and video to express, or present, the result of writing.

This is my practice to make poems, music, and films.

Life

Jennifer and I live in Boise, Idaho at a place we call Sunset Grove, a 1952 farmhouse, where we do our best to nurture organic gardens and orchards in our yard.

We get to bike to work and make music together sometimes. Of course, there’s the day job, everyday maintenance at Sunset Grove, friends, family, local craft breweries, getting lost in the mountains, and art making too.

Professional

I’ve been building websites that work since April 2001 when I started a web design and development company in the San Francisco Bay area. I’ve worked with over 200 small businesses and nonprofit organizations to create sustainable websites, HTML email campaigns, and social media presence.

In 2007 I became the director for web and electronic communications at the University of Alaska Anchorage where I led a national award winning team of web, video and media experts until 2012.

I moved to Idaho in 2012 to be closer to family and now I’m a web content developer and media designer at Boise State University.
