About Me


Making the world a wierder place.


Save time and check the days I am available for surfing.

For years my family smuggled vowels out of eastern Europe. That's why they have such a shortage. We do this to atone for our family shame - in pre-feudal japan my ancestors massacred the letter 'L' over an insult to their honor that turned out to be a typographical mistake.

These days I'm all about making things. By the time you read this I will have finished construction on my CNC machine and will be using to build bigger and better robots. That's right... I already have robots. All hail the nerd king!


Confident, liberal, profiteer, extrovert.

People only grow old while waiting. That's why some 90 year olds act like 30 year olds - they've never had a chance to slow down or lose momentum.

You can't be bored unless you are boring because bored because cannot entertain even themselves.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I participate as much as I can, as often as I can, with all my heart.



My first couch surfing was the night before my last white water rafting trip, in order to get to the pickup point on time. It was a good couch. We watched Fight Club, ate chicken, drank wine, and joked nervously about drowning. My second was with Amy Jackson in New York F'n City. Awesome! Then I surfed in Nanaimo, New York again, and by the time you read this I'll probably already have gone to Seattle and forgotten to update this text.

I was recently interviewed for an article in the canadian (and associated) press about CS.


Burning Man, robots, inventing, stock investing, movies, pushing the envelope, pool (swimming), pool (shooting), sky diving, white water rafting, kendo, rock climbing, rubix cubing, and lots lots more.

Secret mission! In order to let me know that you read my profile, look on Youtube for 'The mother of all funk chords.' Tell me: what chord is it?
