Dave Olson

Poet, podcaster, public-policy pundit and chronic documentarian from his earliest days, world-rambling Dave Thorvald Olson spends his time writing, painting and listening to old vinyl albums on the back porch whilst gazing at North Vancouver’s mountains and trees. Published in magazines and journals on topics from Hemp Culture in Japan to Telco de-regulation, Dave is most proud of his handmade literary chapbooks, static montage art, and audio hi-jinks.

DaveO works as an online community curator, frequently presents at events including SXSW and Northern Voice, and appears in the media discussing technology, hockey and culture.
