Ain't nothin like a man who can do what he wanna - Ice Cube
Introduction
Don't let the obscene length of this narrative fool you. I'm obsessively iconoclastic. So this part really gives me the willies.

I currently am Vice President and Director of Marketing for Commencement Bay Production and Processing, Rainier Wellness Center, and the Rainier family of companies. Each is involved in one aspect or another of Washington's emerging recreational cannabis industry. I believe that cannabis and its various chemical compounds and metabolites will emerge during the next several years as the most promising, untapped medical resource known to humankind. I was recently on the cover of just about every major newspaper you can imagine as a pioneer of the recreational marijuana bidnes, so there's really no keeping it a secret at this point. I have grown and smoked cannabis enthusiastically to treat mind-numbing pain for nearly 20 years.

I am an award-winning journalist, and was once placed on an FBI watch list for an article I wrote about human rights abuses occurring at an Immigration Customs and Enforcement prison on the Tacoma tideflats. I wrote for a business paper for nearly ten years.

I have a Master of Science in human development that I've never used in a professional setting. I also have completed post-grad studies in neurology, pharmacology, biological chemistry, and whole systems design.

I spent several years hosting an sound-art residency in an abandoned nuclear cooling tower.

I am a published author. I have an agent and everything.

I created a company that would have partnered with Northwest Tribal business interests to manufacture some of the most efficient solar panels in the world. But there was a trade war with Chinese solar panel manufacturers, and all of our investors bitched out.

I am a graphic designer, photographer, and marketing whiz, and ran my own marketing company for almost seven years.

I am an accomplished student of several martial disciplines, including American Kenpo, Kali and Escrima, and Wing Chun Kung Fu. I begin practicing Ninpo in February. So soon I will be able to put "Ninja" on my business card. I punch so hard that in the past fellow students would draw straws to avoid holding the focus pad when it's my turn to let some loose.

I love kitties.


Bragging rights
After a nearly $1000 battery of tests at the University of Washington Behavioral Center, I was told I have an IQ of 162, which puts me in the .03 percentile on most of the old assesment scales. Being a staunch objector to all reductionist systems of classification, I take no joy in knowing that I'm a genius. Also, it's horrifically lonely.
