I'm one of those people who loves to do it myself. I want to figure out how things work, to learn from experience (aka the hard way). That's why for The Streetwise Cycle I created my own website, recorded my own podcast, took my own photos (mostly) and used cool tools I found around the web to share the stories. It's why you'll find my book on Lulu and Smashwords.

But it's more than that. It's an aesthetic. In the world of music, they call it "lo-fi" and it's a movement. Creating amazing music by using the limitations and imperfections that come with your home studio or with recording on the street.
