What are your hobbies?
Besides reading books about technology and media theory, my free time is an open range for playing jazz piano with many local musicians, biking on the great riding trails in the area, and traveling with my wife and family.
What are your favorite podcasts?
I bathe in podcasts with my long commutes, and among my favorites are Pivot with Scott Galloway and Kara Fisher, who talk tech and modern culture. I also enjoy a weekly dose of Douglass Rushkoff on Team Human as he wrestles with modern media and its influence on our culture.
Who would you want to play you in the movie of your life?
What are you reading?
At the moment, I’m reading Ka-Fu-Lee’s book titled Super Power AI and the coming age of artificial intelligence. I always keep a couple of more on the side too. Something old and something new: The Future of Man by Pierre Teilhard de Chardin and Sapiens – A brief history of humankind by Yuval Noah Harari
What are you listening to?
My Spotify feeds stay focused on random new releases. When I’m listening to concentrated work, that answer would be Bill Evans, Oscar Peterson, Esperanza Spalding, and Tycho. This joy is often interrupted by teenage daughters who highjack my phone and disrupt my algorithms.
