About

My story:

I'm a writer, editor, philosopher, visionary, entrepreneur and former whole bunch of things. Former U.S. Marine, former publisher, former stockbroker, former archaeologist, former publisher, former air traffic controller, former antique store owner & appraiser, former anthropologist, former columnist, former waiter/bartender/barista/cook/dishwasher, former anarchist community organizer, and former yada yada. Every former has led to the present who I am.

I've traveled a fair bit of the world, explored many of the great religions, and lived among the wealthy, the homeless, and the in-between. I've written books and screenplays, directed films, recorded music, played in bands, and I love to paint or make any kind of art. Creativity is my main mode.

I'm secularly spiritual with a great admiration for Buddhist philosophy and stoicism. I've whirled with dervishes, chanted with monks, and had religious drug experiences with atheists. Every perspective is worth trying to understand.

I am a disrupter and a rabble rouser, a shortish middle-aged bald man with skin that looks whiter and pinker than I feel. In meditation, I've determined that the actual me exists somewhere slightly behind and above my head. This body and mind are more like a shopping cart that the actual me is pushing around through the supermarket of life.

I enjoy VW vans, sailboats, islands, and very long walks. I especially enjoy eating and drinking among friends while outdoors. My ideal existence is something like an open air kitchen with no walls and a vaulted roof to shelter from the rain. I can spend unbelievable amounts of time watching stars, clouds, the wind in the trees, or the pattern of waves moving towards the shore.

I enjoy the ideas behind cryptocurrency, universal basic income, a border free world, and an end to toxic masculinity. I believe humans are made to work - it is what gives us meaning and fulfillment - BUT - I don't believe that employment and work are the same thing. We should work for enjoyment, not for employment.

My motto is "Stop doing bad things. Start doing good things. Help others to stop doing bad things and start doing good things." I try to live up to it, but since I'm human, I don't always.

My mission:

I value relationships with broad visioned people. I believe in cooperative win-wins, expansive/inclusive vision, comradery, and ability to have fun while changing the world. I am on a lifelong quest for wisdom, knowledge, and positive relationships with people, planet, and being. I seek a healthy life of joyful liberty.

My core values:

win-wins work for enjoyment liberty creativity joyfulness

My greatest accomplishments:

I co-created an amazing human! My daughter Sophia is my greatest delight.

I once hitched/hiked across Canada with no money, no sleeping bag, and just a small rucksack.

I created an entire fictional country in one novel and envisioned a beautiful future for humanity in another.

I envisioned, created, and brought to life an audio social network. VoiceMarkr.com is a social platform in progress - but it astounds me to see it alive and working in the real world.

I founded and published an activist magazine in Bellingham, Washington in the 1990s. Our mission was to use the internet and our print publication to connect creativity with conservation and activism. We were too radical and too early - but Gaiasopht is still one of my proudest accomplishments even though we decided to close shop after two years of struggle.

I once wrote an in depth article on a little known activist. Upon publication, her long lost daughter somehow came across the article and it enabled them to be re-united.

My hobbies/activities:

Extremely long meandering walks minimally planned travel eating and cooking outdoors sitting still writing

My goals:

I want to buy or build a sustainable off grid home on the Big Island of Hawaii where I can live, work, entertain, host, and build.

I want VoiceMarkr to become one of the top social platforms on the internet. VoiceMarkr will be a place where users securely own their data, create powerful human relationships, and work together to create a more positive future.

I want to take a long term, multi-country trip with my daughter in which we explore new cultures and adventures together.

Fun facts:

I am a Baron of Sealand.

I own two large parcels on the moon through the Lunar Embassy.

I'm an ordained Doodist Priest.

I was born with all the bones of my skull fused. I was the second child in the world to successfully have a 'soft-spot' surgically put in place so I could develop into a normal child (at least in terms of physical development)

I didn't write books to make money. I wrote books to share ideas and stories. Here are links to free PDF copies of all the books I've written. I hope you enjoy them.

I'm an entrepreneur. I love free markets. I'm not a fan of billionaires. The world should abolish billionaires and set firm limits on how much money one person can have. Yes - you should be able to reap rewards for your work and enjoy a better life because of achievement - or even because of luck, but you should not be able to make yourself as powerful as billionaires are.

I published this back in 2018 when most people who had gotten involved in crypto were deep in the depression of crypto-winter. There were suicides over these losses, though you probably haven't heard about them.

From 2008-2013 I was running Vagobond.com full time, I went by the nickname Vago. I was a passionate couchsurfer living in a remote Moroccan village, trying to jump through the hoops to emigrate my family back to the USA, and learning how to be a father to my 18 month old daughter when I found out Couchsurfing was hiring an Outreach and Marketing Director. I'm not sure what I was thinking when I put this application video together - but the result is one for the ages. A bad one for the ages. It's so bad, it deserves to be shared - and - frankly - it deserves to be seen.
