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 have a bengal kitty named Kika, 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). I’ve taken quite an interest in it. Here’s a performance from 2013 at What is Erotic.
More about me: I like to visit big cities, but I can’t ever live in them. I like to garden and have my space in the country. I sometimes write poetry, mostly for individual people. This was my favorite, but I spent a lot more time writing this one and I like it more now.
Last year I got reacquainted with Burning Man and really enjoy the art and experiences that the playa provides.
At Apple, some of the things I’ve done a lot of work on NSTableView, NSOutlineView, NSSavePanel, NSOpenPanel, some NSBrowser things, the color picker (for a while), NSPathControl (a new class I wrote), and various other stuff. It’s a ton of fun, and I really enjoy working at Apple. I also worked on the iPhone 1.0 for a while — I was on the project before it was announced, and it was a ton of fun working on a “secret” project at apple. I also did some work on the beta SDK for the iPhone 2.0 update. All of my work was on Cocoa Touch (UIKit) – the UI framework for developing applications on the iPhone.
