I'm General Manager for Adobe Type and Adobe Typekit.

Typekit is a subscription service for fonts. It's part of Adobe Creative Cloud. Our motto is "Every font you need, everywhere you need it."

The Typekit subscription service is used by millions of Adobe Creative Cloud customers to find, get, and use fonts in all of their desktop applications.

Our web font service powers millions of web sites across the internet. Our "Font Menu" product is used by providers like About.me to enable font selection in user-generated sites like the one you're looking at right now.

I joined Typekit in April 2011. Before that, I was EVP BizDev and Chief Technology Officer for Schematic, a digital agency that was acquired by WPP. I was at that firm for nearly 10 years. We built a lot of big e-commerce websites.

I've been in the internet business my whole life. I started my first digital agency at 17, which means I've been making web sites now for 25 years.

My wife Jennifer Gormley and I have 2 little boys, James and William. We recently moved from Manhattan to Montclair NJ. We also have a home in Jim Thorpe, PA.
