Other stuff I do

Electronics

I enjoy designing and creating effect pedals, synthesizers and other musical oddities. I have become proficient in electronics design and engineering and am quite handy with Eagle CAD. I also sometimes have a lot of fun circuit bending.

Pedals!

Music

I have a solo noise music project called Xome that I have been doing since 1989. Xome has participated or been featured in about 50 audio / video releases and has performed live over 145 times in various cities all over the USA as well as Japan and Canada.

Japanese

What else? I can speak, read and write Japanese. I have lived for a total of ten years in Japan. Japanese is actually what my university degree is in.
