Hi, my name is Andrew. My last name is Kurjata, which is Eastern European (likely Polish) in origin. It’s pronounced “ker •ya •ta”. For future reference, please bookmark this page.

I live in the traditional territory of the Llheidli T’enneh, aka Prince George, British Columbia, Canada.I make radio, play dodgeball and road hockey, bike to work, and have a lot of pets.

I’m fascinated by the way we think about and interact with the world, the future of our culture, and strong storytelling. I’m also pretty good at using the internet.

About My Blog

My blog has gone through a number of iterations (which you can read about here), but at this point it’s mostly longer-form original/semi-original thoughts with a focus on radio, music, technology,  bikes, citizenship and the city of Prince George. Start with some of my favourites, browse the archives, and if you like what you read, subscribe. Please note that all opinions are my own and are subject to change, as per this disclaimer.

AndrewKurjata.ca is hosted by Bluehost (I used to use NearlyFreeSpeech.net and would still recommend it for smaller sites). Namecheap is my registrar, and it runs a very modified version of the DePo Skinny theme on WordPress. The font is Open Sans.

Super Bonus Tumblr Blog!

I also have a bonus blog containing links, photos, music and other things I find interesting over on Tumblr. You can even ask me stuff.

I’m @akurjata on Twitter.
