My self-summary
I have always aspired to being a cross between a renaissance man and mad scientist :) The story behind my username is that i believe in surfing and adapting to reality generally but recognizing that at other times we have to assert our will like a sword to slice through reality to our goals. My interests span a gamut including technology,sustainability environment, the arts, dance, drama, sculpture, science, philosophy, and martial arts. I am also an avid reader. People often assume I am an artist or musician. I am not but I try to live creatively :)
What I’m doing with my life
My professional life is based around software development and have had my own business for over a decade, although i am in the midst of transitioning to green technology. Trying to live a life of continuous learning and renewal. Recently took a sculptural welding course and trying different meetups to pick up new skills. And have been working on learning new languages.
