I work at the Legal Innovation & Technology Lab (the LIT Lab) at Suffolk Law School, where I help courts and legal aid nonprofits increase access to justice through online tools that make legal processes more accessible to more people.

I also do web development for hire. You can learn more on this page.

In general I look for opportunities to solve problems with technology. Some of my current projects include a web app for your daily most-important tasks, a directory of women-owned skateboard companies, a client dashboard plugin for WordPress, and a directory of Black-owned businesses in Minnesota.

Apart from work I am a dad to two amazing daughters. I am a bookworm. You’ll usually find me with a science fiction or fantasy book, but I also read widely, and I keep track of the books I finish at Bite-Size Book Reviews. And I love spending time outside, especially paddling, backpacking, hiking, and camping in all seasons.

My (Abbreviated) Resume

Some highlights:

  • I think my core strengths are creativity, strategic thinking, systems building, and problem-solving.
  • When I started Caveat Emptor in 2005 I was among the earliest law bloggers.
