My Personal Websites

I also have three other websites that have been around a while. These aren't necessarily paragons of Flash-enabled Java extravaganzal wizardy, but if you would like a glimpse of who I am when I'm not carrying around a laptop, please peruse:

  • Facteur Ferdinand Cheval - A tribute to my favorite 19th century outsider artist, who spent 32 years building a palace out of found stones
  • Fiore Jewelry Designs - I make and sell jewelry as a hobby
  • Izvor Music - Eastern European folk and Rom / Gypsy music is my favorite type and I spent a few months chasing it over there

Volunteering

I'm a big animal fan and have spent years involved in cat rescue. I'm currently the greater Seattle area coordinator for PACT for Animals, a non-profit that finds and screens fosters for the pets of deployed military personnel and long-term hospital patients.

PACT for Animals - Check out their success stories and happy reunion videos!
Purrfect Pals - Their annual auction alone raises $250k for cats and is one of my favorite events of the year.
PAWS - Progressive Animal Welfare Society had many locations in the Puget Sound area.


Best of Seattle

KEXP - Much more than a radio station, this public, volunteer-supported station brings the Seattle (and a worldwide) community together with education programs, free live shows at their Seattle Center location, and events all over Seattle that promote local and underground bands.

SIFF Cinema - A great organization that showcases independent and foreign films, unusual documentaries, themed festivals, and special events and classes, such as one I'm taking psychological elements of film. Become a member.

Seattle Balkan Dancers - This group has been dancing for many years at the Russian Community Center in N. Capitol Hill. Come learn the folk dances of South Eastern Europe every Friday. It's free!

Neumos - This is the place to see the best rock bands. Needless to say, KEXP promotes a lot of shows there. Also in Capitol Hill.

Rebel Saints Meditation Society - Buddhism is for spiritual revolutionaries. Meditation, dharma talks, and retreats at The Vajra on 10th. Capitol Hill.

Seattle Meowtropolitan - A cat cafe in North Seattle.
