I'm equal parts left and right brain, preferring to work in industries and on projects that require creativity working in concert with science. As a result, I'm an audio engineer and web developer, two careers that are about applying deep understanding of complex systems to produce elegant and beautiful results.
I've lived all over North America but am currently residing in Vancouver, BC Canada.
I'm a freelancer because I like to work when I feel most motivated, which can be any time of day or night. I like the variety of freelancing and the opportunities for solving all sorts of challenging problems. I like to move around and I usually work during the day in between migrations on my bicycle, which contributes oxygen to my brain, lets me eat more yummy food while staying healthy, and keep the scenery fresh. I ride a custom 8 speed blue Surly Crosscheck with an internal hub and dropbars. I'm into coffee pretty hardcore.
I've worked on a Grammy-nominated album and with groups you've probably heard on the radio. I've also worked with people you'll never hear on the radio.
Politically I'm a Libertarian Socialist or what might traditionally have been known as "Anarchist". I believe in the ideal of creating systems of mutual self-interest, where what's good for an individual is good for the collective.
My current entrepreneurial venture is Anyone Want To, a realtime social activity network. Think of it as a combination of Twitter, Meetup, and Craiglist. I created it because I'm passionate about getting people to spend time with each other again, harnessing the Internet to forge relationships and enrich interactions that extend offline.
Thanks for getting to know a little more about me. Please get in touch if you like what you've read.
"If there is anything that the nonconformist hates more than a conformist, it's another nonconformist who doesn't conform to the prevailing standards of nonconformity."
- Bill Vaughan
"The idealist has another measure... he does not respect government, except as far as it reiterates the law of his mind; nor the church, nor charities, nor arts, for themselves; but hears, as at a vast distance, what they say, as if his consciousness would speak to him through a pantomimic scene. His thought – that is the Universe."
- Ralph Waldo Emerson
