I'm Doug, the long-haired, red-headed guy with glasses who does all sorts of stuff...
I recently moved to Denver, Colorado, and now live in the suburb of Arvada, not far from Boulder. My love of exotic music and dance has consistently drawn me here for years. I honor several diverse communities with my artistry, inspiration, networking, and organization. Much of this website is devoted to these people and the things which bring us together.
As a recovering computer nerd, I often find social and spiritual refuge in dancing and drumming. I've grown deeply fascinated with the fundamental power of music and its universal ability to connect people. I particularly enjoy fire dancing, goth dancing, medieval folk and court dancing, and belly dancing. Unique costumes, masks, and dance toys add new dimension to these expressions.
And finally, I relax… This often entails being a bit more reclusive, exploring a deeper understanding of my self, my friends, and our world. I may take to Colorado’s beautiful mountains or submerge myself into one of my favorite hot springs. Life’s little wisdoms and its great humor often surface while lost in meaningful conversation or personal introspection.
To sustain me in all this, I turn to my first great art: computers. I now provide various technical consulting services for individuals and small businesses. These include website design, networking, GIS mapping, community groupware, and good ol' fashioned troubleshooting. With these technologies and with over twenty years experience, it’s something I do well and truly enjoy.
If I have so intrigued you, I would invite you to explore my site further. Enjoy!
