Oxymoron – The story of an outgoing introvert.

Artistic nerds.

We’re all a bit alike.

We’re intrigued by organic patterns that are evident in nature and often pleasing to us on a sublime level. The golden ration didn’t just fascinate Dan Brown. A whole slew of artists, philosophers, theologians, mathematicians, scientists are intrigued by it. and that’s just one of many cool numbers!

Patterns are evidence of a higher order.

We feel compelled to understand these patterns. To be able to fold it and unfold it. To rearrange it. To disassemble and reassemble it. Never upset when it isn’t the same as before, but happy or intrigued by the new variation.

We’ve made it our own.

It’s no accident that these clues are given to us. Evidence hidden in the stars. In our very essence. As above, so below.

I know you are, but what am I?

The creative among us struggle to express this. The patterns speak to us. And we want to shout it out to the world! Through artwork, music, literature. We unravel the music into chords, notes, harmonics. We filter the white light and take only the specific spectrum we need to create a unique palette. These methods are the key and legend to those who follow.


Our very core is a generator, and we’re fueled by this natural resource. A free renewable resource that anyone can use endlessly! But not everyone is programmed to access it. Wiring can be funny like that. In know mine’s intermittent at best. Just like I’m not programmed to enjoy taxes or reality TV 100% of the time.

The lineage of geeky artisans is great

Although I don’t yet have a history-book-worthy creation to my credit (yet), I’m still happy to share space with them right here on this web page! It’s mine, and I can do what I want.

Here are a few noteables that come to mind.
