A directory of my businesses.
My work blends humor and practicality. Most began as jokes or art projects (and some remained that way). But most of them turned into businesses.
I've sold products to:
Salesforce, Mozilla, NASA, Electronic Frontier Foundation, Nickelodeon, Viacom, Toys R Us, Naked Juice, Reebok, United States Gypsum, Amazon Web Services, Twitter, Lyft, and more.
Here are current open roles at a few of my companies. Don’t see anything that quite fits, but want to be involved? I’m happy to hear from you!
Assembly Line Member
physical tasks, visual coordination
From custom avocados to drone sweaters to cloud storage — I make products you've probably seen followed by "lol", "whoa!", or "actually, that's useful".
I create Internet jokes, databases, and tools — like a dead URL graveyard, a tour company for demolished buildings, and a phone network for self-employed people.
I organize surreal conferences like LineCon, Oracle OpenWorld (for oracles), outdoor games, dating experiences with drones, pranks, ARGs and more.
I’m a visual artist too! I make theater sets, sculptures, miniatures, oil paintings, illustrations, diagrams, and graphics for digital experiences.
