“So what are you working on now?”

I get asked this question a lot, my friend Derek had a great idea about how to answer it, so I’m following his lead:

  • I’ve lived (since 2017) and worked (since 2011) in Tokyo, Japan. In August 2020 I moved with my family to Vancouver, BC Canada.
  • For the last decade my work focus has been on my environmental non-profit Safecast, and I’ve recently rebooted Toybox Records, a record label I started in the mid 90’s.
  • My wife Tara and I run a very small clothing/housewares brand called Street Sheets and we’re writing a book about people who live interest driven lives which we hope to be out before the end of 2020.
  • For a few years now I’ve been making ambient music/noise with guitars and synthesizers and tape loops. Recently I released a few EPs inspired by how Tokyo felt during the spread of Coronavirus. I put some of the songs up on YouTube as well.
  • I carry a camera with me pretty much everywhere I go and have published a photobook and sell fine art prints.
  • I’ve been training regularly in Bujinkan for 22 years and currently hold the title of Shihan (師範) though honestly I’m not big on titles.
