Kingside Diner is a new take on an American classic: delicious food, made to order and served quickly by a friendly staff that gets to know you and how you take your coffee. It’s a great place for breakfast — whether you eat breakfast at the crack of dawn, or in the middle of the afternoon, or after a night on the town. They also have a complete menu of sandwiches, salads, shakes, snacks, and daily specials.
A business site for my talented friend and colleague Jenny Hodges who does hair & makeup for print and video here in Saint Louis.
I learned a long time ago how important a stylist can be for a production. The half-hour that individuals spend with a stylist can completely change their sense of well-being and self-assurance. That makes a huge difference when they get in front of the camera. Having someone as kind and engaging as Jenny be the person they spend that time with is so, so important.
A redesign of the website for a classic St. Louis restaurant with a long history as a bohemian hangout in the Central West End. We wanted to lighten the look on the web while maintaining a sense of class and tradition.
To that end, I used much more white space than was used before and decided most of the ancillary photography would be in black and white, while the food photography would be in color.
It was a real pleasure working with the chef-owner Aaron Teitelbaum and his staff and with photographer Gregg Goldman.

Music Inside Out with Gwen Thompkins is a weekly, one-hour radio broadcast featuring the people of Louisiana who’ve devoted their lives to America’s music. Host Gwen Thompkins and her guests talk extensively about the fire and sweat of the creative process and parse songs that have influenced Louisiana’s unusually varied musical landscape, music that reaches far beyond the state’s borders.
The standard bearers of Louisiana music are often national icons — from Jelly Roll Morton to Big Freedia, Fats Domino to Tim McGraw, Jerry Lee Lewis to Clifton Chenier, Mahalia Jackson to Trombone Shorty. What makes their music so varied and satisfying is the influence of other cultures — an ongoing dialogue with the rest of the United States and the world.
from the site:
We are so glad you found us. Our story is basically one of gratitude that we have found each other in this place called “Sts. Clare & Francis.” We identified ourselves as Catholics, AND we hoped for a church where everyone was welcome regardless of gender, race, marital status, sexual orientation, etc. to fully participate. We wanted a church where all the members, not just the clergy, had a voice and a way to serve.
We discovered each other and decided to form a parish together beginning in the fall of 2004. We chose the name “Sts. Clare & Francis” to emphasize gender equity and to appeal to the great Franciscan tradition of living of the gospel simply and of reforming the Church by modeling something different.
