Jeffrey Noyes White grew up in the small, quaint village of Clinton, New York. He attended high school at the Putney School, located on a farm in remote, rural Vermont. In these settings Jeffrey developed an appreciation for the beauty and complexity of nature.

At an early age, Jeffrey displayed exceptional aptitude at math and science, writing his own computer game programs and drawing elaborate mazes. He began studying the piano at around ten years old; the guitar, twelve. Soon, Jeffrey grew fascinated by the geometry of music, and became obsessed with exploring all its possibilities...perhaps to the detriment of his social development.

Eventually, after becoming sufficiently aware of the cultural limitations of small-town life, Jeffrey considered broadening his horizons at various colleges and, feeling drawn by the mystery of the west coast, chose to move to Oregon. He lived in Eugene and Portland for 26 years.

Finally, as Portland grew too dense and expensive, Jeffree and his partner Kelli chose to settle in Washougal, WA -- 10 miles northeast of Portland -- in 2016.

So now, when Jeffrey tells you that he was originally from one of the lesser moons of Saturn, you will know better.
