There are other pages about my work and contacting me. This is just about me.
The notable points:
Born and raised in Baldwinsville, NY, a suburb of Syracuse (technically Lysander, if you're taking a census).
Educated at the University at Buffalo, where I wrote a lot for The Spectrum.
Worked as a long-term intern/temp at The Buffalo News, then the Sandusky Register, then the Niagara Gazette and its affiliated local papers.
Jumped from print to web when Gina Trapani responded to my email and hired me on at Lifehacker.
Worked more than 3 years and wrote about 5,883 posts before leaving Lifehacker to work as a freelancer.
Worked full-time for The Wirecutter and its since-merged sibling The Sweethome until April 2019.
Was a journalist, writer, and editor for iFixit.
Now working for carbon-free-home guide Carbon Switch.
I have a wonderful wife, a dog named Howard, two cats (Cork and Apricot), and a ménagerie of friends and side projects to keep me busy. I have a number of opinions about coffee.
If you're wondering what this site is made out of, I wrote up a colophon.
Wherever you go, there you are.
