John is a photographer, designer, builder, traveler, programmer, and writer, currently based in Silverton, Oregon. Having been involved in some of the earliest days of the Internet and the Web, he’s now finding his technology meter running backwards; his favorite gizmo is his 1937 kitchen timer. For the last year or so he’s been obsessively creating a housetruck — a sort of Victorian RV — in which to live and explore.
