fluteI launched the studio six years ago today. No clients, no business plan, no seed money. Just a Macintosh G4 in an unused walk-in closet and a very patient fiancee with a full-time job. I still don’t know whether it was the most reckless thing I could have done or the most reasonable.

Six years out, here are some metrics:

dedicated studio spaces: 4
clients: 24
projects: 220
computers: 6 (2 still in use)
gigabytes dedicated to project archives: 50.95
gallons of coffee consumed: 703 (est.)

Traditional sixth anniversary gifts are iron, sugar, or wood. But more likely, I’ll be marking the occasion with hops, barley, and malt.
