About me

Occupation Making things
Location North Vancouver, B.C., Canada
Introduction I write essays, stories and verse and make podcasts about hemp cannabis - Choogle on with Uncleweed, Canucks hockey - Canucks Outsider, and spoken-word literature - Postcards from Gravelly Beach. I write stories and essays often about technology, culture, travel and cannabis and I've published in Cannabis Culture, High Times, Heads and Journal of International Hemp Association and was a judge at the 2002 Cannabis Cup in Amsterdam. I also made a documentary film called the Hempenroad and appeared in Go with the Flow - about Olympia, Washington. All my writing, photos and painting projects are at Uncle Weed. I also hustle gigs doing writing and design projects and make visual art too - paintings and static montage of ephemeral objects some of which you can see at my Flickr photostream.
