I'm a podcast host, writer, computer programmer and graphic designer. I used to be a radio personality on 680 CJOB (Winnipeg) and 770 CHQR (Calgary). Before that I published an online magazine. Before that I was a musician and recording engineer. I've performed in and written several musical theatre shows. When I was a kid I liked to draw pictures and was fascinated by the rules of sports.
I split my time between an off-the-grid cabin in Whiteshell Provincial Park, a house in Winnipeg's inner city and a small 1970s yacht.
My current focus is experiments in building online education tools.
An experimental system to help independent learners learn together.
Fascinating experience, being human. This is a mini podcast for people who want to live interestedly. Comes out every weekday.

For several years I did a weekly feature on Sunday Night, a radio show syndicated in Winnipeg and Calgary on the Corus Radio Network.
A podcast I co-host for Lake of the Woods Brewing Company.
Random phone calls with people behind cultural phenomena, including the guy who wrote the By Mennen jingle, the winningest Jeopardy player in the world, a woman who makes space suits for NASA. Basic research into the things human creatures do with their time.
A treasure hunt app for the only copy of Royal Canoe's new album, which is buried somewhere.

A podcast publishing platform for the web.
A mini-course about electric circuits. I'm currently making a new version. No pun intended, I swear.
I was hired to write this book for Falcon Trails Resort. I live at the resort sometimes. The book is a series of stories about the funny characters around there.

I played Max in Flying Fox and the Hunter-Gatherers' original rock opera based on Where The Wild Things Are. It was featured in the Winnipeg Fringe Festival where it won Best of Fringe.

I'm proud of this outhouse I built. In exchange, I got to stay in an off-the-grid ski-in cabin for the winter.

I've done a fair amount of stage hosting and MCing.
