About // Bio
( computer wizard and professional creative )
Starting at a very young age of 5, I created music, playing the violin.
Growing up in an isolated mountain area in western Montana, I spent
my days drawing and creating, playing in the woods, and reading.
I starting using the command line near this same time, sitting on my
father's lap using the computer, or sitting on a pillow on the ground
with a little table in the basement, navigating around old DOS systems.
Music, art, computers. That was and is my reality in many ways.
I did well in school once I matured at the ripe age of 13.
I began to study broad subjects and delving into creative explorations and experiments.
I went to honors college for graphic design with scholarships. I learned web design
typography, branding, logo design, design thinking, and many subjects.
After school I designed shirts and did a little web design.
Needing to pay off student debt, I found my way into the technology sector.
Discovering GNU/Linux was one of the best things that ever happened to me.
I became immersed in the open source world and found my way deeper into
computer programming, gaining advanced understanding of operating systems,
encryption, and data management. I paid off my debt and learned many
The stability computer programming brought to my life enabled my music
to thrive, aquiring gear and funding to produce albums.
By 2014 I was performing all original sets at outdoor music festivals
with live electric violin and electronica I made. At this time
the visual art on the back burner and the tech and the music carried
In 2016 the fine art sparked back up in a big way.
I started hanging out with poets and a new group of creatives that
brought out the visual arts along with the music.
We combined poetry, music, visual art, fashion, and more in
a production called Fantasoria.
This was magical time of powerful inspiration and I
made breakthroughs in creative process and combining
sound, sight, the body, and even smell and taste
into art focused on experiences and human interaction.
It was a great success, and founded new connections
With over 25 years of music making, 13 years of electronic music production,
11 years of professional creative work and consulting, 7 years of enterprise
systems administration, and a continued furious dedication to creativity and
human experience, I am hard at work making more. My work now is pushing further
with new music projects, video, painting, performance art, and systems programming.
In 2019 finished a software product that I love and started a new business based
on it called Careful Data. Careful Data
is just getting started but is fueled with years of industry experience and a
product collection that empowers the account holder with encryption and storage
for any type of data.
I am looking forward to sharing my new creations with you. Cheers ~
