Nice to finally see Arcade Fire on Spotify! Sorry MOG, I loved you but this is one less reason I need you.

Finally watched the mid-season finale of AMC's The Walking Dead. Wow, this series is finally getting really good. Best epi of the season.

There's been a steady stream of Etsy, eBay and Amazon boxes coming to the house in the past week. 95% online shopping this year.

Got the iTether app 1/2 hr before it was pulled from the app store. Finally moved fast enough on one of these "authorized" tethering apps!

Once it is backed up to iTunes I'd think it would come back just like all the other apps, photos, music and data

Story
Tagline
✔ Verified builder (of web and wood things)
Introduction
SHORT VERSION:
===============
I'm a builder.

I love to build things for work and for fun. I grew up in St. Johnsbury, VT and came south to attend Boston College and then Harvard University. I currently live in Wellesley, MA.

I also love tech, music, photography, politics & woodworking. I'm a Python and Django fan and a student of SEO. Some of the sites I have created are over there -->


LONGER VERSION:
===============
For work, the things I build are web based. Interesting cocktails of HTML, CSS, PNGs, Javascript, Java and Python/Django. Because of my background, I'm able to work equally well in graphic design, technology, product, marketing and business analytics. This makes me a happy generalist and someone who really enjoys cooking up my own projects and working in early stage companies.

For fun, the things I build are furniture and decks and sheds and mirrors and guinea pig cages and picture frames, among other things.

Currently, I run a new Django site called Wantbox.com, a social shopping site where you post the things that you want and your friends, neighbors and local merchants help you find them. 

I also created the social exploration site TruthTruthLie.me and run all operations for two life sharing websites: ParentShack.com and Sharenik.com and a political news site: polurls.com.

Prior to shoving off on my own, I was the VP of Product Development and Technology for BuyerZone.com, an online B2B lead generation service that was acquired in 2007 by Reed Elsevier (BOOYA!). Before that I was the Director of Advanced Product Development at Lycos.com, co-founder of 2d Interactive, a new media company, and a researcher at Harvard University, MIT and the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston.

I'm proud to have grown up in St. Johnsbury, Vermont - the jewel of the Northeast Kingdom. I have a BA in Economics with concentrations in Mathematics and Fine Arts from Boston College (interesting fact: there are more people at BC than in my hometown) and a Masters in Architecture from Harvard University.

Despite investing 3.5 years, countless all-nighters and 100% of my heart and soul earning an architecture degree, I have never worked in an architecture office. I like to think that it's helped me with my product development and project management, though.

I enjoy music (singer/songwriters like Damien Rice, Brett Dennen, Sufjan Stevens, The Decemberists, Jack Johnson, Ben Folds, Nick Drake and so many more) and I long to be a better guitarist. I really enjoy making my two tween-aged daughters laugh, playing fetch with my Havanese puppy and going to dark, smokey pubs and tossing back a pint of Sierra Nevada Pale Ale with my wife and girlfriend (same person, I promise ;)

On the days that I'm burned out from looking at my three LCDs, I dabble in woodworking, photography, plucking crabgrass from my yard and various home improvement projects.

I do not enjoy winter, cooking or waking up early. My most guilty pleasure is Miley Cyrus' "Party In The USA", I hate myself for liking that song...
