Steve Jobs resigns as CEO of Apple

I haven’t written anything in a while. Mainly because I didn’t have much to say. And honestly, there isn’t much I’ll be able to say here that hasn’t already been said by others. But shit, this guy changed my life so I wanted to say something.

I have no idea where I would be if I didn’t ask my parents to get me a Mac for Christmas all those years ago. But I can tell you this:

I wouldn’t be a short film maker. I wouldn’t have made this EP with my best friend. I wouldn’t have designed this blog. I wouldn’t know how to code websites from scratch. I wouldn’t be working at the best job I’ve ever had. I wouldn’t be learning to program as I design/develop my own product. And since owning a Mac led to all this, I probably wouldn’t be married to my wife.

So in a sentence: Steve, you changed the world as I knew it and for that, I can’t thank you enough. I truly wish you well in whatever comes next.

Letter Case

Graphic Design & Web Design

Letter Case was my one-man design shop based in Los Angeles, CA.
I ran it for 2 years until I joined Typekit in January 2011.

In my spare time I've been learning to program by building my first web application.
A simple tool called Talkative to help people publish their talks on the web.

My current project is The Briefcase. A blog and podcast.
It's a place for me to create and publish stuff.

Simplicity is harder than it looks.
