Ken Zinser


Born in the suburbs of New Haven, Connecticut.

Raised in Northern Virginia, just outside the Capital Beltway.

Living in Seattle with my wife, Sarah, and our dog, Olive.

All my family comes from Cincinnati, Ohio.

I’m a husband; a son; a brother; an uncle — a great-uncle (!); a homeowner; a Cincinnatian, once removed; a Virginia transplant; a type 1 diabetic; INTJ; a porcupine; a dog dad; a city boy; an Apple fanatic; a skater; a hockey player; a casual gamer; and a freakin’ webmaster.

I hold a BFA with honors in Graphic Design from the Corcoran College of Art + Design in Washington, DC. My senior thesis explored the benefits and pitfalls of three budding social impact programs.

Before pursuing an education in design, I spent two years at Miami University of Ohio. I mostly studied English and creative writing.

This my personal website, a quiet little corner of the internet where I collect my thoughts and share ideas.

I’ve been a resident of the World Wide Web since 2005.

I genuinely treasure time with my wife, Sarah, and our dog, Olive. I also enjoy roller skating woodworking, playing ping pong, coming up with band names, and collecting flea market dinosaur figurines.

I used to hunt for funky neon signs around the city and share my browser tabs.

This summer I’m trying to get back into bouldering and rollerblading.

I’m a big proponent of the indie web.

If the devil is in the details, consider me the devil’s advocate.

Since you made it this far, consider getting in touch.

Thanks for being here.
