About me

Hello world.

I'm a motorcycling nut and enjoy having OCPD and depression. I dropped out of school during the dot-com boom and worked at,, and finally a miserable, confusing year at Big Fish Games. We downsized from our large Seattle home and moved into a tiny Downtown Portland apartment, attended school at PSU, and I got my degree in Computer Science. We moved to Koreatown in Los Angeles, and I worked for Demand Media.

I currently work for Ad Hoc Labs, which makes the Burner application.


I'm a fan of Adam Carolla and the shows he's done over the years, as well as the umbrella of related individuals: Teresa Strasser, Dr. Drew Pinsky and Loveline, Jeffrey Ross, David Alan Grier, Joel McHale and The Soup, etc.

Since getting involved with Wikipedia:WikiProject Oregon, I have taken on a couple of tasks that were needing a not-owner: mainly, fulfilling requests for photos in Oregon and creating/expanding every high school article in Oregon with sources and infoboxes. I've never attended a primary/secondary school in Oregon, nor do I have children, but that hasn't stopped me from learning and contributing as I can.

Good times!

Peace Barnstar 6.png The Barnstar of Diplomacy
Tedder is hereby bestowed the Barnstar of Diplomacy for his measured contribution to the dispute of November 2011 involving Chris Hardwick's Nerdist Podcast page. Tedder's contribution to the dispute discussion exceeded the confines of Wikipedia. Following Tedder's mediation efforts he went on to admirably serve as an ambassador for Wikipedia, participating in a substantive conversation on Chris Hardwick's Nerdist Podcast regarding the dispute which brought positive attention to Wikipedia, the philosophies of its editors, and its oft-unseen processes.
