I drew comic books for DC, shot thousands of concert photographs in the US and UK, wrote music columns for regional newspapers & zines, designed CDs & press kits for bands all over the southeast, handled promotion for the infamous Pterodactyl Club in Charlotte, was a cartographer and designer for a game publisher, and somehow created an entire genre of sci-fi liquid latex costuming amongst Florida cyber-film-enthusiasts.
These days I design user interfaces, in-app graphics and marketing materials for a rather high profile iOS and Android developer, write and illustrate fiction for a friend's online anthology, advocate for bicycling usage and safety, occasionally spin minimal ambient techno, and blacklight bodypaint.
I am not a corporate climber, but I respect those with honorable ambition. I'm not a brainless sports-addict, but I do value friendly competition. I'm not a cookie-cutter alterna-guy, but nor do I follow society's political or social conventions. I am my own person, always have been, always will be.
Voracious reader - non-fiction and fiction alike. History, fantasy, science, politics, regional...and since I got my iPad I've been reading even more since I can toss my entire library in my backpack and have it wherever I am!
Watch comparatively little TV but currently I have a few series rotating that I download the instant they become available: Sherlock, Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, Orphan Black, Broadchurch.
Podcasts, the new radio: The Incomparable!, The Talk Show, The Cycling Podcast, VeloVoices, Accidental Tech Podcast, Liftoff…
Mostly vegetarian for almost a decade, I learned to reconfigure my protein intake to help my arm heal. Cooking has gone from something I just did to something I LOVE. Spice is a must, but not necessarily "hot" spice. Ginger, bok choy, rice, tomatoes, scallions, seared tuna, raw or lightly steamed veggies... give me a list of ingredients and I'll whip *something* up that's drool-worthy!
