My self-summary
I'm a dedicated nonconformist. Creative, intelligent, and highly analytic. Looking for more ways to grow and contribute to culture and the well being of others. Intellectual growth is important to me and I have learned to stretch my boundaries by reading books that conflict with my prior beliefs.

I was a political activist in the 70's, a little less active in politics today, but still committed. I am a scientist first and artist second. My art is stereoscopic (3D) photography, stereoscopic computer graphics, and large scale conceptual art. I've been attending Burning Man since 1996.
What I’m doing with my life
Promoting reason and science.
I’m really good at
Solving problems, analyzing data, and photography. Also a good cook, but don't tend to bother, I don't care about food. When I do I tend to get obsessed with perfecting one recipe.
The first things people usually notice about me
