Tell us about yourself!
I release organic ambient techno and own the Relaxed Machinery label, work in IT mostly with EDI, collect music, and read a lot.

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.

Cheers John for featuring the photography stuff !
