Hi. I'm Daniel.

I live in Brooklyn near a big park.

I like to build things: furniture, websites, companies.

On very rare occasions, I write about those things.

TinGully

I make furniture by hand in a workshop in Gowanus, Brooklyn. The workshop, and Brooklyn more generally, is a thriving community of makers who constantly inspire me and push me to be better: to be more clever, careful, and creative.

TinGully is the best expression of that inspiration. Getting my hands dirty to build something beautiful and functional? Doesn't get much better than that.

Oh, and I know how to weld. So, that's pretty badass.

Horn & Hardart Coffee

Established in 1888 and famous for bringing the Automat to Philadelphia and New York, Horn & Hardart was a staple of life on the East Coast for most of the 20th Century.

My family home is always full of discussions about the Automats, the food and, most especially, the coffee. The coffee is in our veins.

And now, it can be in yours, too! Proudly roasted in Philadelphia, we make delicious coffee in the style that has been loved for generations.
