About Me


Searching for peace and justice in a post-colonial world. But only on weekdays.


I am a philosopher. I ride motorcycles, drink tea and seriously dig public radio. I have been known to talk at length about hip hop, motorcycle races and existentialism. I think the couch surfing project is all kinds of awesome and I can't wait to wash up on your shore.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

How about a few more than one? I have seen a couple World Superbike Races live. Almost got kicked out of Miller Motorsports Park after jumping a fence to wave an American flag for Ben Spies. Once had to slaughter a goat on behalf of a bunch of nuns. Once flew to New York to give a paper (that I had not yet written), only to have the building get closed off because of a gas leak. Then got paid a hundred bucks for the paper that I didn't give (or write).

Teach, Learn, Share

I know a few things about special topics in philosophy. Mainly I get down on Existentialism and Africana Philosophy. I am pretty good at using Pro-Tools and Reaper and have conducted training sessions at radio stations in the use of it and other audio editing software.
