Simmons Buntin

“Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it.”
— Confucius

Simmons Buntin is a tall drink of water who seeks a certain beauty in all of his pursuits, whether managing technical projects and teams, editing the award-winning online journal Terrain.org, writing and lecturing, making photographs, or even walking the dogs. That seeking — that seeing — is a professional and creative pursuit well beyond the surface of things, something akin to truth. And quite often: humor.
