I’m John West.
I’m the lead technologist in the R&D Lab of
The Wall Street Journal. I'm the on-hiatus
co-founder and technical director of Etc. Gallery, and I
live in Dorchester, MA with my partner, a baby, and a cat.
I hold an MFA in writing from the Bennington Writing
Seminars, a Peformance Degree in historical performance from
Oberlin Conservatory, and a BA in philosophy from Oberlin
I make things with words, code, and music, I think websites
ought to be fun, and here are some projects I've proud of.
