He has this quality, Zebe does. You sense that he could just be humoring you. In fact, he and housemate Trevor humor a lot of people at their weekly hangout as AZSessions spins live. Zebe's in the center of a circle of geeks, architects, and musicians that's flat-out cool. Sometimes innocent, sometimes implicated, he's always watching. We're not sure we've ever seen him walk, actually; he just sort of appears and disappears. Postmodern legerdemain.

OCCUPATION:

"Student."

QUOTE:

"?"

BANDS (followed):

"All over the place, from Underworld, to Richie Hawtin and the others back in Detroit, to Esthero, Tori Amos, Massive Attack . . . it's all about variety."

OTHER CO-CONSPIRATORS:

"Roseann, the Chooch, Drake, the rest of the AZSessions crew, and various other covert operatives whose identities I'm unable to reveal at this time."

LIFE STORY IN BRIEF:

"Spent my formative years in and around the Detroit area, mostly exploring the net and the music scene and less the actual city (which at times I regret). I came to Tucson for school but found myself in the process. I'm not sure when I'll leave."

BORN IN:

"Rochester, Michigan."

HOW LONG IN TUCSON:

"Since 1999."

ONE WORD TO DESCRIBE TUCSON:

"Atmospheric."

WHAT YOU WOULD LIKE TO SEE HAPPEN ON THE LOCAL SCENE:

"Get more people out supporting nights, events, and musicians. Try to get some bigger names stopping in our city as well.."

CONNECTING POINTS:

"You'll always find me under the AZsessions sun. Catch me around campus, dancing where there's a good beat, or pausing for a bite of good food in any of Tucson's great restaurants."

ARTIFACTS:

"Various Underworld-related memorabilia. My trusty Mac and my Palm, without which I'd be lost."
