Writing

I am currently writing a book (working title: Organizing Information), due out from A Book Apart in April 2019. Aimed at web designers and developers, it makes the principles of information architecture more accessible and practical to teams without working content or IA professionals.

I write a monthly newsletter that features brief observations about my professional (and sometimes personal) life, along with commentary on current articles. You can sign up for it (and read previous issues) at tinyletter.
