I'm Director for Product Management in the Creative Cloud organization at Adobe. I run the Adobe Type team and lead Adobe Fonts.

Adobe Fonts is like Netflix for fonts, and is used by millions of Adobe Creative Cloud customers to find, get, and use fonts in 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 just before we were acquired by Adobe. 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.
