Hello and welcome!
This blog is my extended exploration of how to live well, both as individuals and collectively as a continually evolving species. I write about health and nutrition, metaprogramming (my take on spirituality — how to program your own brain), creative work, running a small business, alternative economic models, electronic music and popular culture, and a few other topics. I also publicize my own music releases, and offer free downloads of singles, EP’s, and full albums.
I live in Oakland, California (in the Temescal neighborhood) with my wife Kia Simon and our young daughter.
I produce electronic music as Jondi & Spesh, Momu, Yellowcake, and other aliases, and run Loöq Records with DJ Spesh. I’ve been fortunate enough to have my tracks played by insanely talented DJ’s including James Zabiela, Hernan Cattaneo, John Digweed, Sasha, Paul Oakenfold, Nick Warren, and Adam Freeland, and my music has been featured in major motion pictures, TV shows, and video games. My most recent album with Mark Musselman (Momu – Rising) hit Beatport’s Top 100 Releases chart.
I also work as a freelance database developer. I have completed projects for BART, Google Transit, Alameda County, the San Francisco Symphony, and a number of small businesses and non-profit organizations.
In the past I have worked as an event promoter, DJ, movie extra, martial arts instructor, dolphin cognition researcher, and fish hawker.
I hope you find some value here … leave a comment if you have something to say (and dissent is welcome, as long as it’s polite). Please share posts you’ve enjoyed. And if you like progressive house, techno, breakbeat, chill-out, and/or ambient, check out my music.
Money burning a hole in your pocket? I don’t need it, but please consider donating to one of my favorite non-profits. Two entirely different projects, both extremely important for our collective progress as human beings:
