About

About

I’m a writer, photographer, musician, and tech person from Oregon.

Urbanism Writing

From 2006 until I left Texas in 2018, I wrote about matters of urban design, architecture, transit, bicycle advocacy, and walkability. Originally, I wrote about these topics on a site of my own, Fort Worthology, but in 2015 I moved to the alt-weekly newspaper Fort Worth Weekly. Below is a selection of articles from this period.

Tech Work

From 2008 to 2018, I was the Macintosh Hardware Tech at Texas Christian University in Fort Worth, Texas. I left in 2018 to move to Oregon. I am an Apple Certified Macintosh Technician and have extensive experience with Mac hardware and software and iOS software, as well as good familiarity with Windows 10. I also have ability with the Office 365 suite and Adobe Creative Cloud – Lightroom, Photoshop, and Premiere in particular.

Music

My primary project is The Crystal Furs, a guitar & organ-centric indie pop band in the vein of ’90s groups like Heavenly, Go Sailor, and Velocity Girl. I handle keyboards and do backing (and occasional lead) vocals as well as writing about half the songs.
