I am a retro post-punk meta-hipster, bassist, raconteur, techno-archivist, humorist, optimist, bon vivant and a fan of vinyl records, early 80's Japanese hi-fi gear, photography and obsolete but useful machines of all kinds. I am the proud owner of a 1970 Hermes 3000 and a 1940's Remington Rand typing desk.

I also created a typewriter image "filter" (see my avatar). It's written in Python and generates 65-character-wide images using over 1700 actual red-and-black-ribbon'd samples from my typewriter, meaning I could actually type them out myself on an 8 1/2" wide sheet of paper with 1" margins.

My dog Koa and I live in Buckeye, AZ.
