The Toledo Sunday Magazine is my latest collaboration project. I've had this idea for a bit, and finally found a partner to handle all the editorial work involved with it. From a design and development perspective, it gives me an opportunity to build something I've been curious about for a while. Most local news and editorial sites are either plagued by ads or use weird Wordpress themes or funky PDF magazine-like experience apps. This is using Next.js under the hood and a TBD headless-CMS (Sanity.io is the likely choice). Subscribe here.
With social distancing still suggested in the U.S., we still find ourselves exploring outside, even with the cold Ohio winter. The kids love it, and my wife and I are constantly learning to embrace it.
Pizza and Bread
Like many others last year, I got (back) into sourdough. A few years ago a friend who sold loaves made with beer and cheese at our local farmers' market was kind enough to share the process with me and get me started. I stuck with it for a few months, but eventually moved on.
But now with kids and weekly pizza night, I've kept a starter alive and enjoyed making pies every week. During the summer it was a great vehicle for all the amazing veggies we were getting from our CSA share.
Once I had pizza down I started working on bread again and picked up Bryan Ford's new book and I've been working through it ever since.
My day job at Concentrek provides me with the opportunity to work on their SaaS offering, Konvert™. With a small nimble team I'm enjoying the daily tasks that go into product planning/strategy, and UI/UX design and development. Still love working with React and GraphQL.
