Barkings! | The SmallDog Apple Blog

A blog about our business, our industry, and our lives. You'll find posts from everyone at Small Dog and if the dogs could blog, they'd be here too!

Family: My mother comes from a small family of German farmers in Kansas, almost all of them ordained methodists. My father comes from a huge group of rowdy French-Canadians that settled in Stowe, VT and all around the state. I live with my wonderful partner, Jasmine, in our tiny two-room studio apartment downtown.

Pets: One cat, (Sabine)- she’s black as the night and soft as a rabbit.

Hobbies/Interests: Baking breads, playing guitar, washing the dishes, gardening, cooking (delicious vegan eats), getting far too involved in the theoretical.

Favorite Books: Douglas Adams (Hichhiker’s Guide and others), J.R.R Tolkien (LotR), George R.R Martin (Game of Thrones), Alice in Wonderland, War and Peace, Oh, the Places You’ll Go (and other Dr. Seuss). Where the Sidewalk Ends (Maurice Sendak).

Favorite Bands: The Beatles, Beck, Beirut, The Flaming Lips, Interpol, They Might Be Giants, Deftones, Aesop Rock, Great Northern, Warpaint, Lykke Li, Milk and Motor Oil, etc.

Favorite TV: Adventure Time, Friends, Seinfeld, TED Talks, Fraiser, Becker, Parks and Recreation, Fawlty Towers (john cleese), Star Trek (original, next gen, voyager)

Favorite Movies: The Matrix, Brazil, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Nosferatu, The Room, Monty Python, Star Trek (Wrath of Kahn, etc), Star Wars (before the awful prequels)

Favorite Food: Being vegan, I care about what goes into my body. I focus on gathering high-quality raw ingredients in order to craft all of our recipes, and I always prefer a DIY mindset when it comes to creating wonderfully moral, healthy, delicious, and economically viable diet.

Favorite Drink: All of the tea forever! (No caffeine, not particularly good for your heart or your head) – plenty of water (at least a couple quarts a day, a gallon if you can manage it)

Favorite Sports/Games: Biking, Hiking, Kayaking, Swimming, Video Games (selectively, I am not a huge fan of all the blood and realistic violence these days)

Favorite Apple Products of All Time: My first mac was a 14in iBook G4. Loved that computer. Lasted almost 5 years without issues.

Favorite Apps: Evernote, anything from Google, anything from developers that are smart and forward-thinking enough to build cross-platform with current language standards.

Favorite Thing About Small Dog: The community.

Favorite Quote: “Do not go gentle into that good night, Old age should burn and rave at close of day; Rage, rage against the dying of the light.”
