Welcome friends and curious passers-by. If you know me and have come here to see what I'm up to or delve into my sporadically creative world, you may have come to the right place. "May have" because keeping a website fresh and up-to-date is a huge chore that I'm not always up to. I'll try. If you have stumbled on this website by chance, you might find something to keep you occupied for a moment or two if you also happen to have an interest in written communication, music, photography, cinematography, and/or Japan, my home for 40+ years.

If you just want to know who I am and what I do, go straight to the "About" page.

Right ... so what is this?

I won't even try to pretend that this is some sort of sophisticated commercial website. Nope, it's just me fooling around. I design it, build it, maintain it, and fill it with fluff. There's much to learn about what makes websites and the Internet tick, and since doing is the best way of learning, I do.

Media, which in one form or another has been my vocation for the past 40 years or so, is now so inextricably linked to the web that to ignore it would be head-in-sand insanity. So here we are.

It is a commercial website only in the sense that clients and/or potential clients can check in and see that ...

  1. I'm still at it, whatever it is.
  2. I can actually communicate clearly and even artfully where appropriate.
  3. I'm thoroughly embroiled in the ongoing media technology avalanche.
  4. Irreverence is incurable.

That's about it. It isn't a blog, so I won't be posting pictures of my food or vacations, but I will add essays and articles to the "Words" section and images or sounds to the "Media" section whenever I come up with something suitable.
