Hello, I’m Jack Baty.

A little about me

I’ve been a partner at Fusionary Media since 1995. Fusionary is a terrific digital studio in Grand Rapids, MI. If your business needs something built for the web or mobile devices you should send us a note.

I blog at baty.net ✒️

I’ve also been having a ball at my new wiki: Rudimentary Lathe.

You can email me at jack@baty.net ✉️

If you use ProtonMail and prefer a more secure method: jbaty@pm.me ✉️

I have a few other interests:

Photography. I call it photography” but it’s more like camera collecting.” I shoot both film and digital and upload to Flickr

Analog. Digital is where we are, but I still enjoy using things like film cameras, vinyl records, manual typewriters, notebooks, and fountain pens.

See the Now page for a list of more specific current interests and projects.

****Do not expect consistency****.
