I enjoy unicycling a lot, and seem to be somewhat decent at long distance unicycling. There is an international competition (UNICON) every two years, and in 2010 I became the Marathon Unicycle World Champion! In 2012 I went to UNICON in Italy; I got 3rd in the marathon, 10km and 100km races; the competition was much tougher!
I really like traveling and seeing the world. I’ve been to Europe, Vietnam, Indonesia, Africa, Madagascar, and New Zealand. I’m hoping to go many more places.
I also like woodworking, metalworking/machining, rock climbing and building things. I like treehouses, and lived in one for about five years. Some things I built are the recumbent unicycle and tandem unicycle. I like working with my hands and I’m skilled at many things. I love being outdoors. Yosemite is one of my favorite places in the world. I have a passion for animals. I love kitties (but don’t have one right now, have some fish, and some chickens.
I live in the Santa Cruz mountains, and I enjoy working on my house, dubbed Project Hutchinson.
I also enjoy photography, and especially like HDR landscape photos.
I’m particularly fond of electric cars, and how they are good for our environment.
I dabble in circus arts — mainly playing with roue cyr (also known as the cyr wheel). Check out my “Projects” section for me making them and doing stuff with them. I’ve taken quite an interest in it. Here’s a performance from 2013 at What is Erotic.
A few years ago I got reacquainted with Burning Man and really enjoy the art and experiences that the playa provides.
I’m a software engineer at Apple, and you may have seen me speak at WWDC about Cocoa (AppKit) or iOS (UIKit).
