I did all the growing up I care to do on a farm in Northern Colorado. I've worked as a creative director, freelance designer, usability specialist, curriculum consultant, professional evaluator, and graduate instructor; and have presented academic research and training seminars on three continents.

I am intensely fond of typography, symphonic cello, and stracciatella gelato. I detest bad line-breaks, bean soup, and writing "about" blurbs for blogs.

Oh, and I'm going to change the world.
