👋 Start Here

Hi there. I'm Jonathan. Welcome to my home on the internet…

‎⁨‎⁨Golden Gate Bridge⁩, ⁨San Francisco⁩ • Taken on an ⁨iPhone X⁩

I've been writing on the web in one inconsitent form or another for the last 16+ years. I started writing about philosophy, which was far more noble than my subsequent endeavors. This quickly segued into a tech news blog, to a website specifically about Apple, to a Health & Fitness stint, to where we are today: The Next Waffle.

The old proverb, "better late than never" is routinely accurate in hindsight. It took nearly two decades to suss out my predilacation for design, technology and productivity. This should give you a pretty shameless indicator of what I intend on covering on this small website: Design, Technology, and Productivity.

What you should know about me…

  1. 👨🏽‍🎨 I'm a Director of Product & Design at American Express, living and working in San Francisco. I received my Master's of Architecture from the Savannah College of Art & Design, and graduated in 2014.
  2. 🌱 I'm constantly looking for ways to increase my team's productivity by improving how we communicate, simplifing our processes, refining our craft, and growing the team.
  3. 🖥 I'm a certified geek, seven days a week… This means I'm reasonably obsessed with new apps, tools, and technology. I can think of worse vices for a person to have.
