Short Bio

I'm a multi-instrumentalist musician trained in jazz improvisation. I played music in the US Navy for 7 years in the 90's. In the early 2000's, I recorded solo music and made websites to share it. After I failed to make money doing that, I trained myself as a computer programmer while living on the streets of Seattle. I focused on making gaming engines (3D math and collision detection). I've been working as a contract programmer with my company Dot Trombone LLC since 2007.

I love programming and music, but I also have a passion for politics. I feel that the overall message in our national politics needs to change. I'm primarily focused on energy policy. The convergence of climate change and declining fossil fuels is at a critical stage and we must take action. It is going to take decades to change our energy infrastructure and we must get started on that path.
