My Bio Grew up in the midwest (Indiana to be exact), and moved to San Francisco right after college (which was quite a while ago).

I've worked at several content and technology companies over the years, including CNET, Sun and Ziff Davis. Now I'm at Blurb, and loving it.

When I'm not working, I'm usually either playing music, reading, or being incredibly frustrated by the latest episode of Lost.

Things I Don't Mind The World Knowing

Spoiler alert: I'm thinking my next book will be about...
I have two books on the horizon. The first is just a classic archival project of a lot of old family photos. I may make it a straight photo album, or try to show the photos in chronological order, and add some stories along the way.

My second book is still top secret, but I can say that it has something to do with puzzles.
Everyone needs to know about these authors and artists...
I'm always willing to read a Paul Auster (just got the Brooklyn Follies) or Nick Hornby book . Or more classic fare like Hemmingway or Steinbeck. And of course there's everyone's newish favorite: Haruki Murakami.
This book is addictive. Read it. (At your own risk.)
I still think that the best book I've ever read was Leviathan by Paul Auster. It's just so... so... I don't know. Its a little grim, but so good.

For kicks I recently re-read the Chronicles of Narnia. Though its not even remotely what I remembered them being as a kid, its still pretty fun to zip through.
