What I'm Reading


I'm reading Bicycle Diaries by David Byrne, wherein he examines "navigating the collective neural pathways of some vast global mind" through bicycling. I look forward to his handlebar view of cities such as Istanbul, San Francisco and Sydney.

I find both bicycling and walking drive me creatively towards optimism and usefulness. I expect to hear a similar sentiment from Byrne.

A Film About Bicycling and Art Featuring Me

My art is going to be hung concurrent to a series of films being shown. A friend of mine produced three shorts for Streetsblog San Francisco. One of the films is about me, my art, my family, and bicycling. I won't be able to attend the opening, because it's the same night as my daughter's Berkeley Rep performance.

But, save the date of March 24th if you want to see the films and the one-night show in San Francisco. All the details are awaiting confirmation. But for now the fundraiser, screening, art show, and party is tentatively scheduled to take place at Workspace in the Mission,
2150 Folsom St, between between 17th & 18th. We don't yet have a time, but it will most likely be in the evening.

Writing Elsewhere

I've been writing elsewhere, mostly magazine articles:

Momentum magazine, No. 44, Reality Rides, Shaping the Future of Richmond’s Youth

Public Transportation Feels the Pinch, Terrain Magazine, Winter Issue

Momentum magazine, No. 42, East Bay Programs for Children and Teens Address Urban Cycling Barriers

Also, my art was featured in the Portuguese language magazine Go Outside, Issue 49, June 2009, in an article about arts and sport called Arte em Movimento.
