Well-traveled guy, living with my wife in Mill Valley, California just north of San Francisco. I've got very widespread interests, and travel is high among them. In fact, I run a web-based travel recommendation website, called Trekkel, and I've been doing quite a bit of travel myself to prepare the content for the website.
Other interests of mine include art and architecture, ceramics (I teach a wheel throwing class at a local pottery studio and made my living for 3 years as a full time potter and sculptor), design, France and all things French (I lived in Paris for three years), the cultural impact of web technologies, intellectual property law, fencing, geopolitics, mystery and historical novels, classic Hong Kong films, and the evolution of science.
I'm very quiet, don't smoke, and rarely drink. I'm attached at the hip to my bicycle, my Mac and my iPad when I travel so I need a good internet connection wherever I stay.
You can see examples of my ceramics (email hidden).
