About your host
My name is Mark Dodge Medlin. I'm a communications pro and former journalist who lives in Pasadena, California, with my wife and our dog, a poodle mix named Tag.
I work in the communications department at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, one of the most respected hospitals in the U.S. In my 30-year journalism career, I did it all — reporting, editing, headline writing, page design, Web work, even some paste-up using hot wax and an X-acto knife.
Elsewhere on the Web, you can find me in a number of places:
- The Occasional Odd Crop: my photoblog, with which I had my first CSS experience by rewriting a Blogger template to create a unique look; I moved the blog to Tumblr in 2012
- The Occasional Odd Thought: my tumblelog, in which I share my work and others', along with, well, you can see the title
- Twitter: sharing links and thoughts, 140 characters at a time
- Flickr: my photos, grouped and geotagged
- Drawmo and 'skineart: in which I put down my camera and pick up a pen and sketchbook
