About Me


share music, ideas with a wide variety of people


I like folk music, electronic music, playing guitar, adventuring internally and in the outside world, languages. I grew up in london and have lived in various places in the states (new mexico, northern california..) I like to look at the funny side of life and I think most things in life are best looked at while half-chuckling.


treat others as you would like to be treated. one man's freedom ends where another begins
