My self-summary
Born and raised in the great state of Alaska. Am very much enjoying the Bay area's affordance of year round bikeability.
What I’m doing with my life
By day I am a network technician. Keeping the worlds wires buzzing with electrons. On some weekends I operate the physical and psychic machinery of underground electronic music parties.
From time to time have had all sorts of occupations, from organic gardener, organizer, roadie, service industry worker, wild land fire fighter, percussionist.

These day's I've become incredibly busy working a lot. Am attempting to find the optimal balance between the necessities of career and a well-rounded life.

Variously have lived in Alaska, Oregon, Louisiana and now the Bay area for the last 10 years.

I enjoy hiking and camping whenever possible.

In an alternate reality, I am on a mission to decode the algebra of perception as it relates to the construction of meanings.
I’m really good at
Seeing strange shapes in clouds.
Un-breaking "broken" stuff.
Getting lost in the woods.
Getting un-lost in the woods.
Making electronic things-that-should-not-be
Dreaming up impractical plans that should happen regardless of feasibility.

The six things I could never do without

I spend a lot of time thinking about
how to help the future be better than it might be if we don't do anything.

Murphy's Law(s)
On a typical Friday night I am
ensuring that typicality does not develop. (sometimes, if not am probably catching up on some project or possibly helping make a group meal).
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Random thoughts - am more interested in ideas and processes than opinions or beliefs, the scientific method (tentative hypothesis, always improving). The visual and sonic arts hold a great deal of interest with their alternate languages.
