About me

Currently

In May 2016 I packed my things and moved to San Francisco to work as a designer at Gusto. I also write for CSS-Tricks and Adventures in Typography, a weekly newsletter about type.

Bio + history

As lonely kids are often captivated by stories, I was mesmerised by the tales I found in books and the narratives I soaked up through novels, short stories, poems and plays. The dark arts that produced these narratives were always fascinating, too. In fact, reading, writing, designing, programming, all of these activities seemed to be inseparable from one another, so much so that I had no idea that there were separate, predefined roles for each kind of work. As a result today I feel uncomfortable describing what I do on a daily basis; calling myself a designer, web developer, typographer, or a writer just sounds icky to me.
