You might know me from San Diego. Or Los Angeles, or Ventura County, or Virginia, or the Philippinessee also. Have we worked together–in tech or in a hospital when I was a respiratory therapist? Maybe we met at a drink-and-draw or sketch party? Perhaps you read a comic of mine in a Burn All Books anthology? Or maybe you know me from the beach, which I visit often. Or a convention (was I sketchnoting? Comic-Con? XOXO pre-pandemic? Long ago at a BarCamp?) Whatever reason, welcome! There’s more here than you can read in one sitting. Here’s even more about me:
I am a programmer by trade. Here’s some of my writing about programming. Some of my work is on GitHub. This website is a work in progress and features a hand-rolled WordPress theme. I use phpStorm and VSCode for most of my work. You can read more about the background of this site at the colophon. My resume is here.
- Extract #Hashtags from Titles and Content for WordPress
- Migrating my old static pages into my WordPress theme
- Small shoutout; Perl and 1994 Yahoo!
I collect toy robots.
- New Bot Day! Welcome to this B2-series “super battle droid” which is a Burger King giveaway associated with 2005’s Revenge of the Sith. Cannon fodder but very scary. BK made him cute tho. Acquired @ Chicago’s Bric-A-Brac Records & Collectibles @bricabracrecords on the same day I visited the excellent @quimbysbookstore! Fun shopping in #Chicago!
- New Bot Day! R6-W1CH joins me on vacation in Chicago! She’s a Star Wars astromech droid exclusive from Disney (2021)—she assists a coven of witches, thus the hat! She’s joined by some newly acquired Windy City denizens. Happy Halloween!
- New Bot Day! Zambot 3 (ザンボット 3) is from a 1977 anime tv show “Super Machine Zambot 3.” It’s not a giant robot I knew about as a kid. The show is considered a precursor to Gundam-style science fiction stories: it has life and death stakes. Many characters die by the end of the 23-episode series. Here’s to serious robotic drama!
I make comics. One made it into a literary journal. Do you want to do an art trade or buy a Riso print of mine? I have stickers too.
- Literary Journal: Chiricú Journal

I love the ocean. I always have. I swim and bodysurf. #stoke
- I lost a fin. I came out of the water smiling anyway. #stoke
- King Tide and its opposing low tide at Dog Beach today. Earth’s Moon was at its closest and drew the ocean up. This was Dog Beach at 8 in the morning and 4 in the afternoon. #KingTide
- It was glassy. Caught some rights. #stoke
There’s thousands of posts here. Some were imported from blogger, some from del.icio.us, many from Instagram, some are just lists of links, some are longer reflections on life. If you’re determined to read you might start with what has been most commented upon. Here’s the the Colophon. Enjoy!
