Unnecessary Detail

The TL;DR version: I do digital stuff for a living. I like coffee. I don’t like celery. I live in New York City. My dog’s name is Omelette. I know how to spell “onomatopoeia”… and know what it means, too.

The (Slightly) Longer Version

I’m a digital product and strategy guy working at Critical Mass in New York City. I help people solve problems and build useful, intuitive and delightful products and services that other people love to use. Outside of work, I try to get out running as regularly as I can, and I like to use my downtime to read a bit too, although nowhere near as much as I probably should. I occasionally post notes about what I’m thinking, even more occasionally write some longer stuff, and have also been known to take a photo every now and again (many of which are of my dog). If you’d like to get in touch, you can email me at cam @ this domain or hit me up on Twitter or LinkedIn. I don’t do Facebook or Instagram anymore.

About This Site

Everything here is built on Django with a few other Python scripts running in the background to fetch data, but I’m not a real developer by any stretch of the imagination, so it’s mostly held together by duct tape and wishful thinking. Previous versions used to use a bunch of (semi-)complicated build automation to make everything go, but then I realized that that was a ridiculous thing to do for a personal site, so now I use the least complex setup I can think of.

(And just in case you were wondering, “onomatopoeia” is defined as a word that suggests the sound it describes, like “boom” or “splat”.)
