Welcome! I'm a past-life architect now teaching The Writing Studio. I dabble at the frontiers of writing, editing, mind-maps, and virtual reality. This Notion site is a hyper-categorized digital museum of all facets of myself.

✍ Writing

I'm inspired by early bloggers from the 1990s who froze their minds into HTML web-mazes. I'm on a quest to dive into a delirious range of writing formats (essays, analysis, journals, AI-generated fiction). I categorize after the fact, and share as I go.

⚡ Topics

Anything I write gets a series of tags, and then all tags get clustered into Topics. I write most about the Metaverse, an emerging network that synthesizes VR/AR, blockchain, architecture, and social media. Inspired by Marshall McLuhan and cyberpunk fiction.

📚 Collections

You can learn a lot about a person by the random things they collect. Collections are groups of things I've either created or curated that are separate from my writings.

All collections

I generate linework, an AI renders several options, and then I revise my linework once I see how it thinks. It's an iterative process. (56 works)
