Ahoy there. Welcome, and thanks for taking the time to check out my little corner of the internet.
I spend my days with the creative team at Starry Internet, where we're working to create a radically new choice for internet service. Before that, I was at Hook & Loop, the creative product studio at Infor, where I worked with a team of talented designers and information architects to reinvent retail software. I live at this cool place called Common in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. In my spare time, I work on a project with a few friends called This There That, which is a community of people who love to explore, and to share stories and tips from their travels. Formerly, I was a Copywriter at Handy, a Content Intern at Foursquare, and a Social Media Intern at the Missouri Review literary magazine. I'm a graduate of the University of Missouri.
In school, I studied English with an emphasis in Creative Writing (to be extra specific, I studied creative nonfiction). I still write, essays mostly, and if you want to keep up with all of that, you can find the link to my Medium profile on the left. Want to know what I'm reading? Check out my Pocket profile, or check out my bookshelf.
Want to chat about finding the coolest restaurants in your city, racing sailboats, snowboarding, the apps that I think are better than their more mainstream competitors (like how you should obviously use Square Cash over Venmo), our favorite writers, craft beer, pretentious coffee, or anything else? Drop me a line.
Take care out there,
Cole D. Kennedy
