From IndieWeb

A Quick Introduction

I am a visual artist - primarily working in drawing, photography, and printmaking.

In my day job I've been a Front End/UI developer, a development team manager, and I am now working as a solution architect (for the past 8 years or so).

My Website

My website is at where you can find more about me or read my blog The Artist’s Notebook.

My site is focused on my artwork and my writing about my artistic practice. There is some artwork and writing by other artists and writers archived on there as well, but these days it is all about my artwork and writing.


My site is hand-coded PHP on a lightweight third-party MVC framework. No third-party JS or CSS libraries are used. No analytics packages (apart from server-side logs) are used.

I've implemented microformats on many pages now, but I'm sure there are still some missing.

I maintain a changelog for my site at
