Hey there. I’m Charlie. I’m friendly and I make stuff.
I’m an indie web developer. That means I run a small web-based business that makes the world better. My main project is PearBudget, a simple, beautiful tool for budgeting. I’ve been running PearBudget as my full-time job for five years now (since the fall of 2007). We get love notes from our users.
I live in Virginia with my wife and three daughters, in a house we built. I love meeting up with People From the Internet, so if that sounds like you, let’s hang out sometime.
Apart from PearBudget, I work on a number of distractions that both improve and interfere with my work. You can see them over at the projects page. The one I use the most, myself, is Right Now.
I post quotes, articles, and links on attention management over at The Attention Management Blog.
I post neat things I find online to my tumblelog, at charliepark.tumblr.com.
I’m on Twitter. Frankly, when people say “you should follow me on Twitter”, it pisses me off. So I’m not going to tell you what to do. If you want to see my account, though, it’s at @charliepark.
Bookmarks are at Pinboard.
Twitter (@charliepark) or e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) are the best ways to reach me.
