Making the long-overdue jump from national EDM scribe to spiritual
skeptic and hoping that one of you will pleasantly surprise me.
What I’m doing with my life
Working on a magical realist memoir/nomadic myth about the
international gathering circuit called "Heaven in the Disaster
Area." I'm also learning Python and, soon, HTML5, as I am
interested in emergent, dynamic possibilities for text and

Climate change, and creating new social models around these new
realities, the never-ending feud between science and faith, the
continuing legacy of the '60s counterculture in politics,
technology and culture. Oh, and when it's on, Breaking Bad.
On a typical Friday night I am
Learning. Still waters run deep, my friend.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm sort of embarrassed to be on here. But hey, maybe you are, too.
Believe me, I know all about it.
