Welcome to

This is my space for creative tomfoolery, learning, and random ideas.

I’ve got no content schedule, so check back in periodically! Or sign up for my email list, which will probably be updated even less frequently.

Why Extra-medium?

It’s a little bit of a play on the learning new things and the quality of the work here. It’s not quite medium and it’s not quite large. It sits in the in between as I explore new mediums (get it, extra-medium?) I know it’s probably a little heavy handed and a little you know, extra. But I think it fits my endeavor of exploration and vulnerability as I the higher standards of my professional life.

Organization and Reading

Things will be ordered by the last thing I updated. Posts will be a sort of reverse case study. I really want to show the creative process and mess that my side project life, curiosities, and thoughts are. Often, things will start out as a simple idea, a sketch, a pile of words, or just an interesting book or article I’ve seen. From that sketch will come more things, those things will pile on top of the blog, and shift to the top as I add content. Eventually landing a “final” product on the top. I think it’s fun to show how the sausage gets made and hopefully that encourages others to be vulnerable and do the same thing.

Perpetual Motion Machine

This little diddy comes from some inspiring work from Jeff Hawking and his theory of intelligence and how the brain works. It’s a great book that proposes an interesting idea. What you’re about to read is an attempt to wrap my head around how that can map to my personal design work and career.

Captive Audience

Been doing some research for an idea that I’ve got. Diving into classic, iconic, and interesting sitcom living rooms.
