Hey! I'm Daniel. Right now I'm wandering a bit, writing a lot, exploring what's next, and building Shortwave.


Sometimes I write longer pieces to dig deeper into something that's been on my mind. A few of the best posts are Digging Your Own Hole, Creating moments for discovery, Why I care about code, Open For Business, Frivolous Experimentation, Making Yourself Irrelevant, Being Human, and there's even more on my blog.


Occasionally I email a short letter regarding what I've been working on and thinking about. I wanted a more personal place to share what might normally be posted on sites like Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, etc. You can expect silly jokes, top-of-mind thoughts, an active worklog, and dog photos.


I've designed apps for OneShot, Jewelbots, RunKit, Estate, SilviaTerra, and others. Earlier in life I worked for Twilio as a product manager and Coudal Partners on Field Notes notebooks.


Other than that, a few personal projects I worked on previously are Mocky (a magic window into your team's Dropbox), Driftless (your friends' best Amazon purchases), Colorplane (a color picker for humans), The Shakedown (shake your phone, get points, be happy), and Hermes (helping designers & developers find jobs in Chicago).
