I like to collect and revive old computers. It's a lot of fun to gain a new piece, learn everything there is to know about it and delve in to the history of these vintage machines. I started programming computers when I was a little kid and some of these really bring back childhood computing memories.
I have lived for a total of ten years in Tokyo and Okinawa and can speak, read and write Japanese. I have a bachelors of arts degree in Japanese from San Francisco State University.
I have a solo noise music project called Xome that I have been doing since 1989. Xome has participated or been featured in many audio and video releases and has performed live around 200 times in various cities all over the USA as well as Japan and Canada.
