My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a breakbeat DJ and producer, teacher, burner, geek and hacker from New Zealand.

I love education, intelligent conversation, barbed humor, filthy jokes and outrageous puns.

My overall social profile draws equally from the raver, the academic, the artist, the programmer and the teacher. It's a pile of odd cultural contradictions, but I'm fond of the cognitive dissonance.

I'm committed to responsible, evidence-based hedonism. I believe in better living through chemistry.

Burning Man is a huge part of my life; my friends, lovers and allies are typically (but not universally) burners.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working, writing, hustling.

I'm putting together a downtempo EP with a local jazz singer, learning about blues, hip-hop and soul production, writing software for a non-profit, building DJ toys and plotting a move back to San Francisco.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Production, public speaking, musical analysis, improvisation, being determinedly cheerful, eyebrow-raising, sarcasm.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My accent. It's difficult to place and a little unpredictable.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I spend most of my waking hours listening to music. Some broad outlines of stuff I like are below, but my playlists are always in flux.

As a DJ, I primarily play heavy tech-funk and breaks, with smatterings of house, techno and progressive. My sound is high-tech and psychedelic, but I come from a jazz background and like to keep things warmer and more organic.

I'm also a fan of the classic pantheon of experimental rock music, think Coil, Skinny Puppy, Bauhaus, The Legendary Pink Dots, David Bowie, Swans and so on.

Recently I've begun to listen to hip-hop. Aesop Rock, Atmosphere and Dead Prez being the obvious three.

I read constantly, largely science fiction, urban fantasy and the New Weird. Authors include Iain Banks, Mervyn Peake, China Mieville, William Gibson, Neal Stephenson, J.G. Ballard, John M Harrison, Jeff VanderMeer and Ray Bradbury.

I know very little about film.

Food is the social glue that holds civilization together.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I can do without most things, especially when travelling.

Good headphones
A laptop
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The sociology, psychology and history of electronic music, communal euphoria, drug culture, intentional community, Burning Man and travel.

Music, production techniques and performance.

Writing practice and process.

Exploration and self-discovery. I'm trying to work out how to be successfully human, identify my needs, contribute to my community and build relationships of value.

Although I lack formal training, I hang out with social scientists and have acquired a working knowledge of gender, class and race.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
This is wildly variable. Often at a concert or party, having drinks or dinner with a friend. Other times I'll be travelling.

Recently I'm more likely to be home working on playlists, writing or delving into strange musical realms..
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I went to university in my early teens.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're smart, adventurous, organized, vivacious, confident and good at direct communication. You need to have something awesome going on.

I'm not exactly monogamous, but my girlfriend is très awesome and I'm picky.

Being a burner helps. I'm tribal.
