In my “official” reality, I’m VP and Executive Creative Director at Decker, a quirky little ad agency in Glastonbury CT. But despite my respectable title, I’m really just a Cosmic Dot Connector.
My Briggs Myers Personality Test says I’m INFP. Introverted. iNtuitive. Feeling. Perceiving.
I grew up a nerdy, artsy, weird kind of kid, which curiously never changes. My schooling is graphic design, my occupation is writing, and my obsessions are music, cigar box guitar building, video editing, and of course, this website.
Lately I spend most of my spare time at the kitchen table, MacBook at hand, along with coffee, a code editor and my trusty Radio Shack soldering iron. I still want to be a mad scientist when I grow up. Or maybe a philosopher. A mad scientist philosopher. I started channeling Space Monkey in January.
Here you’ll find snippets of a life unfolding. Unraveling perhaps. If you want to know more about me professionally, you can try LinkedIn or Google, but for better or worse, Cape Odd is the real me.
I constantly seek happiness, but forget that I already possess it. So I put my heart out there and keep the faith that someone will find value in my work. This, I believe will bring me happiness. But I don’t need anyone to bring me happiness because I already have happiness. Seriously. Don’t bring me any more happiness, I already have too much. Where would I put it?∞
This is where Cape Odd started back in 1999 — and the original design is still here today! Available through CafePress, “None More Black” is stylishly pricey, and one day might become super valuable. Like what if you were bleeding and needed a black tourniquet? Or a color-coordinated cloth to polish your black bicycle? Wave it in the air and experience the opposite of surrender! Order today!
I would love to hear from you, especially words of encouragement. I can’t tell you how difficult (or stupid) it is to post my unfiltered thoughts and creative channelings all over the interwebs like this. Please sign my guestbook or email. Oh yeah, you can also try friending me on Facebook. If you’re weird enough, I just might accept.
