This is my new website. Here’s some old press and writing.

Hola! My friend Traci Larson, who happens to be a fantastic designer, has been helping me build the new site that you are on now. The old site was cool, but the amount of stuff I was adding to it was making it kind of unruly. And as you can see the previous post was almost a year ago, so yeah, I hadn’t been doing my job as maintainer-of-my-own-website.

Following her guidance, we didn’t really see the need for a separate press/writing page, because I can just post those things on this blog as they happen. So, if you’re looking for the big, slightly self-aggrandizing list of press and writing that the old website had…well…here ya go:
