I grew up in Charlotte, North Carolina. I arrived when I was 13, I left when I was 22. My formative years were all spent collecting media and friends and experiences that were not conventional.

I bought a lot of magazines, reading words by people who knew more, wrote more, saw more and felt more than me, from places far away. Last week, i gave all of those magazines away, to my friend Jason Scott. He went through them, and based only on the contents of that box, said this about the collection, "A sort of suburban kid’s lifeline of weird words, unusual pictures, and crazy promises that someone might be able to live up to if they ran far and fast enough in the right direction."

That nails what I went through out there so thoroughly that I simply can't add anything but thanks.

Before I left DC, I worked briefly for a company called EchoDitto. It was one of the best groups of people I ever worked with. I left because the work they needed didn't match what I wanted to do, but it was a fine fine company.

They are looking for some web developers. Please have a look and pass this on to anyone who may be interested:
