What I’m Doing Now

I connect people with each other.

I work for pay selling reclaimed building materials as the store manager at ReUse Action in Buffalo. ReUse Action is a for-profit continuation of Buffalo ReUse, a not-for-profit we founded in 2006. I’m also responsible for communications, promotion and publicity and a fair portion of the technology. I direct our web presence and I manage and maintain The Guild @980, a business incubator we run in our building on Buffalo’s East Side. I’m a co-founder of The Foundry, a business incubator and makerspace, started up in 2012.

My community initiatives are DesignBuffalo, where I’m in charge of communications and the Preservation-Ready Sites website, which I started in 2013. I recently launched Brick Streets, a revival of an earlier list of Buffalo’s brick and stone streets.

My small biz craft initiatives are woodworking, bookbinding and web development.
