A personal online playground for projects, thoughts and hobbies.


The homepage serves as an introduction for new visitors, a directory of the Pylos  and Field Notes topics and themes for those looking for something specific, as well as a consolidated source for weather, ski, and news for its creator.

Field Notes

A place to demonstrate thought leadership through articles, observations, ideas, and a collection of links across the web, organized into 6 themes.

Each theme has two roles - categorize the varied content in Field Notes and serves as a guide and introduction before visitors dive in to the content. From the introduction essay to the primers, the themes are the heart of the website.


Articles come in a number of formats but are clean and try to get out of the way of the ideas within them. Layouts are intended to shift in-order to best display each type of content from long form essays to short ideas and quotes.

The Feed

Progress and innovation requires a broad sphere of influence however with a critical eye to filter signal from the noise. The Feed is a collector of interesting moments across the web, a record of the bleeding edge of architecture, urbanism, cities, and technology.

Feed by Type The feed is more content than layouts so it is kept simple - put the content first. It defaults to a grid of link previews but allows for a timeline view, a tag cloud extracted from links, and live search to filter out relevant moments of the past.
