I’ve been posting content to this site since 2001: many photos, a few cat comics and a bit of writing.

In a previous life, I worked with great people creating interactive experiences for screens of all kinds.

In 1989 I co-founded Mackerel mackerel one of Canada’s first interactive media shops, making diskettes and kiosks then web sites and CD-ROMs for seven years.

Post-Mackerel: a few Creative Director jobs then contract work on educational projects, most notably a number of projects with Rosetta Stone from 2006-2012.

When Multimedia Was Black & White is an expanding text memoir about Apple’s legendary hypermedia platform HyperCard.

In 1999 I started using digital cameras in my work, and then I always had one with me. One thing lead to another and here I am.

I made two books with my cousin Adrianna. I worked with her to adapt her collage works to create books published in 2008 and 2015.
