My self-summary
In 1983, as a freeelance writer in a town that inspires long-distance travel, I found the little RESET button nestled on the back of my head, gave it a press, and abruptly escaped midwestern suburbia on a computer-laden recumbent bicycle... not realizing that in the process I was launching a whole career in my neologism of technomadics after having falling into the "American Dream" (otherwise known as doing things you no longer enjoy to pay for things you don't want after all). Now, decades later, I'm still at it... preparing my nautical escape pod (a 44-foot steel pilothouse cutter-rigged sailboat) for open-ended blue-water voyaging on a global scale. I've written six books over the years and am working on another one, and I'm addicted to learning curves.

I am verbal, geeky, and technomadic
What I’m doing with my life
Frolicking in the strange domain where technology and adventure overlap... and occasionally writing about the process.
I’m really good at
Avoiding employment, conjuring gizmology, wordplay, and turning the odd phrase. Trying to be good at the piano, too, but I've only been at it about 6-7 years... still blues-jam on the flute occasionally. I build machines for adventure, and reach escape velocity with the help of sponsors, media, and volunteers.
The first things people usually notice about me
The pun daemon -- an autonomous process in my brain that subjects all input and output strings to a series of filters designed to spot lexical or parsing ambiguities, then quickly packages them as parenthetical inserts into conversation. Oh, and I'm 6'4" tall.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Lots, depending on context... impossible to answer this question accurately in less than a few thousand words! Fond of classical and jazz piano, wildly spicy foods, speculative fiction, and the occasional suspension of disbelief.
The six things I could never do without
A lab, a sailboat, a spirited pal, a net-connected Mac, music, and a sense of humor... not necessarily in that order.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global sailing adventures and the technological underpinnings of my escape pod. In less-ambitious moments, I busy the ol' wetware with wordplay, geek expressionism, and music.
On a typical Friday night I am
Working on ship systems... reducing tonnage via eBay... playing piano... tinkering in the lab... machining a front panel... hanging out with my goofy boat-cat... (But what is this "Friday" of which you speak?)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Despite appearing to get a huge amount done, I have terrible work habits. Fortunately, I make up for this by moving in the same direction for a long time...
I’m looking for
  • Everybody
  • Ages 45–60
  • Near me
  • For new friends
You should message me if
You have a yen for nautical adventure coupled with a musical nature and an undercurrent of passion that is making you very, very restless...
