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 search for a transformative model for independent publishing on the internet.
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 eight 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 working to imagine the future of digital publishing at Condé Nast.
