Currently in beautiful Portland, Oregon.

Previously in: Santa Fe, New Mexico / Nelson & Wellington, New Zealand / San Francisco, California / Albany, New York / St. Louis, Missouri.

That's a lot of time zones. Home has been hard to find.

Sometimes I'm a User Experience Designer for Web Applications. I've worked on some well known sites. Including: The St. Louis Blues, Blogger, Froogle, and with The Robot Co-Op. Alongside countless lesser-known, sometimes never launched, but often interesting client sites. Both as a freelancer and for a couple of years at Spiral Design Studio.

At one point, UX Designer was all the job I could ever want. I loved the mix of art, empathy, and science.

Now days that dream job has been reduced primarily to science. Often times that science is rooted in addiction and manipulation.

I'm currently on the lookout for something better, in a industry I can feel good about…

I enjoy email. Letters are fun. jason{at}similarselection{dot}org

Nature is important to me. It's where I feel the most like myself. Or where I'm most likely to find myself. Or where I'm most likely to let go of myself.

For the last few years, I've been learning electronic music production. I keep a notebook (mostly of completed tracks and inspirations) over at everything.else.solar.

I don't know where I'd be without books. I never went to University. Role models were hard to come by when I was growing up. Little of the wider world was directly accessible to me. Books filled gaps and expanded my horizons. Goodreads.com is where I track what I'm currently reading.

You won't find me on social media. I quit Facebook nearly a decade ago. Instagram a few years after that. Twitter early in 2016. While I miss out on things by not having them, I've never missed them.
