About the Constructor

I’m Brian Callahan, a crossword constructor from Chicago. I typically create lightly-themed mini- and midi-sized puzzles a couple times per week. Some of my full-size puzzles have been featured in the Los Angeles Times, Wall Street Journal, New York Times, Andrews McNeel Universal Syndicate, American Values Club Crossword, Lemonade Disco, and Apple News+.

Outside of making puzzles, I like to travel, run, follow Chicago sports, and spend time with my wife, Caroline, and our little terrier-mix, Penny.

Thanks for checking out my website! I hope you enjoy my creations.
