I like to build (or sometimes break) web things.
Product & web dev, father, Brooklynite, with zero Irish accent. That kind of thing.
Today I am VP for Product Technology at Hearst Newspapers. Former Director of Product Engineering at The New Yorker, previously launched Quartz from Atlantic Media - and back in the day software dev and a Product Engineer for The New York Times.
My work has been featured one way or another on The New York Times, Apple.com, Google, Forbes, TechCrunch, Fast Company, GigaOm, The Atlantic, MacWorld, Mashable, Read Write Web, NiemanLab, Smashing Magazine, Macworld, ReadWriteWeb, Life Hacker, and others. I've only ever received one two Cease & Desists and hope to collect more.
Its always possible to email me but you can also find me on Twitter and Instagram. I'm trying to do more public coding on Github and be a good mod on Stack Overflow. I use LinkedIn to track my professional life and there was a time in my life where I thought I'd be on Dribble more. Not so much. Validate me or see my Google PageSpeed Score.
In my spare time I build side projects. One day I should link to them all. My current favorite one is old and outdated but lives here.
If you're looking for my old talks on data, APIs, and deep-linking, you can find them here:
