I've also helped put together this multi-label/multi-artist community with a lot of help from friends.

More than you ever wanted to know is on my bio page at my label Relaxed Machinery.

or you can read a lengthy interview with me by Michael Foster/Ambient Visions.

I also enjoy taking photos, especially macro.
