My name is Erik Frey and this is my web site. Enjoy!


I live on a narrowboat in the heart of London. I like it out here! I research and develop music esoterica for last.fm. It's a dream job: my colleagues are all philospher kings, trying to change the world.

I'm often described as difficult to get a hold of and as having a nicely formatted resume.


I shared a very big house with some urban heroes in the Bay Area. I worked at a snazzy startup, building music client and server software.

Before moving to the Bay Area, I spent a year circumnavigating the globe, mostly through former Soviet bloc countries and China. It was incredible; it changed me.

Before traveling, I lived in Santa Fe, New Mexico. I built GIS/science software for an environmental agency that became like a family to me.
