I’m retired after a career of 35 years in Information Technology and prior to that 10 years of Real Estate property management/development. Though retired, I am busy with a number of projects.

I’m a synthesizer player and electronic music producer, and record music under the Anxiety Forest name. I also play acoustic and electric guitar. You can listen to or support my music at AnxietyForest.bandcamp.com or AnxietyForest.com. You can follow Anxiety Forest on Facebook at facebook.com/AnxietyForest and on Twitter at twitter.com/AnxietyForest.

Continuing my musical interests, I am the founder, editor-in-chief and an administrator of Revolution Oscillators, primarily a Facebook group of left leaning synthesizer, gear and electronic music enthusiasts. You can join the group at facebook.com/groups/revolutionOSC and the companion website with lots of synthesizer information, patches, wavetables and videos is at revolutionOSC.com.

I’m also active in the intentional community Jesus People (socialist, Christian) that I live in with a number of projects that help the community itself and our charities, primarily one of Chicago’s largest homeless shelters Cornerstone Community Outreach and some senior housing Friendly Towers.

The last 10 years, I have also been an activist to fight homelessness, support progressive/socialist, and anti-corruption politicians. In my most well-known project, I was a founder of the organization Uptown Tent City, since disbanded.

I am the founder, editor-in-chief and an administrator of the Uptown Pigeon, which is primarily a left leaning Facebook group of Chicago news, politics, and anti-corruption articles and comments. You can join the group at facebook.com/groups/UptownPigeon and the website at UptownPigeon.com is currently being revamped.
