I was born in Madison and stayed there all the way up until I graduated from college. Go Badgers.
Along the way, I've gathered that being nice still matters, being funny can work wonders, and being able to work in both pretty words and pretty pictures leads to pretty cool things.
Those lessons still guide what I do at work (as a copywriter in New York City) and out in the world: I try my best to not step on toes, not take too much too seriously, and not let any S.O.B. tell me a writer can't draw (or code, like I did on this here site).
I'm likely working right now, but if not, I'd love to chat about your project, drink (most) fluids, eat, play ball or take a stroll.
