I still believe that the future is written by bold experiments conducted by small groups of friends.
In 2002 I was fifteen. I taught myself to write HTML and built one of the first online stores to sell independently published zines. The experience was so profound, I dropped out of high school to pursue internet publishing and online retail. I’m very proud of that, and I’ve never looked back.
Since then, I’ve lived in the woods, on the road, in squats, in collective houses, in warehouses, and offices. I've worked on a haute kitchen line, on construction sites, for design firms and newsrooms. Once, I owned and operated a letterpress studio. I spent 8 years as a core member of one of the most prolific anarchist media collectives in history.
I live in Brooklyn, NY.
I write about the long view of civics, cultural production, and social technology.
I speak (occassionally).
I’m a full-stack designer, programmer, and publisher.
