I'm an author and illustrator with a sordid past in technology industries. I've written five books, and have exhibited my paintings, photography, and illustration in North America, Australia, and Europe.
I was born on the Mississippi Delta and raised in the Rocky Mountains. Over the past forty years I've tried to see as much of the world as I can, talk with as many people as possible, and explore the ends of the earth before I find my own. So far so good. I've had tea with terrorists in Sri Lanka, made love with robots in Tokyo, and celebrated Christmas 2000 in Bethlehem with the PLO. I hitch-hiked to war-torn Baghdad in 2003 where I delivered letters, money, and watched museums burn under the full moon. I lived in a little art gallery in Paris, scaled buildings, explored catacombs, and drank a lot of red wine and absinthe (but not together). I met my wife hitch-hiking in Corsica, then I met her again in Paris, then I married her in Las Vegas. We now live on our sailboat in Mexico. I've sailed four of the seven seas and I'm a USCG certified captain. I can speak English, French, and Spanish. I've won awards, invented technologies, founded three companies, and have worked in research centers full of deep geeks and brilliant jokers. I can spit over four meters and I'll dance 'til dawn, if properly inspired. I think I'm only getting started, and wish I had 200 years to live.
