Played in the Scion room at the Import Motion car show in Sacramento on Feb 5th, then drove up to Tahoe and went snowboarding at Northstar the next day. Coming back to NYC on the redeye wasn't so fun, but it was worth it.
 
Going snowboarding! 12.21.04
Headed off to British Columbia to sample the slopes at Fernie, a small resort tucked away in the Canadian Rockies, which reputedly gets the most powder in the world?!! Don't know who comes up with those stats, but I'll take their word for it...
 
Back in NYC 12.12.04
I had the most amazing time in Central America! I was there for five months living in the last house on a dirt road tucked away in the clouds of Costa Rica at over 5,000 ft! The closest working telephone was two hours away! We had world class waterfalls within steps of the house and I would wake up in the morning to a flock of squawking sulphur-winged parakeets landing in a tree outside the house. The trees were covered with orchids, bromeliads, and old man's beard, you could walk through the forest and see strangler fig trees, quetzal birds and glass-winged butterflies... I even started a little garden with vegetables and herbs! I climbed Costa Rica's highest mountain 3 times (12,532 ft/3820 m), and got to explore the unique high-altitude shrubby páramo moonscape that surrounds it. I also had the opportunity to discover the cultural and geographical offerings of Nicaragua, Honduras and Guatemala for a few weeks, which was amazing. See pictures.
 
Headed South! 07.15.04
Well people, it's time for me to go places that a box of records won't take me. I'm headed to Costa Rica for 5 months to live in a tropical cloudforest on the slopes of Mt. Chirripó, Costa Rica's highest peak, on a tract of land right on the edge of the massive national park that houses the mountain. I'm due back in mid-December.
 
O, Canada... 06.11.04
Headed up to Canada for a few weeks of canoeing and camping in Algonquin National Park and for some r&r at little cottage on Lake Huron.

Put up a few pics from this last trip to Asia and from Vail. In the Pictures section.
 
Snowboarding and DJ'ing in Vail 04.06.04
I'm in Vail, here to DJ at the Vail Film Festival! I went snowboarding 7 days in a row, saw a ton of amazing movies, and I loved every minute of it!! Headed back home today, but looking forward to VFF 2005..!!!
 
Back from Asia (again!!) 03.22.04
Back from 5 weeks in Korea and Taipei. Super fun! I took a week off to travel around the volcanic island of Jeju-do in the south of Korea by motorcycle! Visited some outdoor hot springs in Taipei, and lots of night markets everywhere!
 
"Electrofunk" reviewed in URB! 02.13.04
There's a review of the track I released on Blunted Funk in the Feb issue of URB magazine. Check it out here.
 
Back from Florida 02.08.04

Back from Asia 01.23.04
Back from 5 weeks in Hong Kong & Korea. It was a blast, a few pics are online.
 
Back from Europe 12.09.03
I'm back from Europe! Some highlights... someone in Poland liked my set so much he came up to me while I was playing and gave me the shirt off his back (it says Poland on it!) That was definitely a first... I think I will hang it on my wall like a hunting trophy! Hamburg was also great -- they did lots of press for promotion (like 5 or 6 articles in all the local publications), and the place was packed, plus there was a TV crew documenting it all and the next day a picture of me & the promoter was in the Morgenpost (Morning Post)! See Calendar section for details.
