See my NOW page to see what I'm up to.
I have two novels out: Couch and Sherwood Nation. (See the Works page for recent publications.) My list of projects can be seen here but in summary, I published a poetry journal out of gumball capsule machines with Laura Moulton, ran city-wide alternate reality games, and took part in a campaign to free a Guantanamo inmate, Adel Hamad (Project Hamad) with Laura and David Naimon.
I occasionally make web apps:
- Universal Deck - universaldeck.org, a tool to create a 'personal universal deck', a writing exercise / divination tool created by the poet Michael McClure.
- PitchPost - pi7.ch, a mobile web app for storing information/conversations/secrets at precise locations.
- CueDeck, a flashcard app which will email and text you a word a day.
A short list of interests: intersections of narrative & tech, archaeology, environmentalism, history, futurism, gaming/sociology of gaming, astronomy, sustainability, biking, walking, indigenous cultures, silence, wellness / happiness, animism, animal consciousness and animal rights, and a host of other issues which are in this era deemed 'political' but which ought to be just common-sense or human rights stuff.

If you have enjoyed one of my apps/projects, feel free to buy me a beer. Cheers!
I have mild face-blindness , along with these others — ie: if I at first don't seem to recognize you, I probably need some context. Some year I will finally be fluent in Spanish. I was also the founder and CTO of the startup Walker Tracker (about that here). I’m married to the writer & artist Laura Moulton .
