Hi, I'm Luciano (AKA "geofictician", AKA Jared Way IRL). I'm the owner of the and domains, and I'm the designer and administrator for those websites. Both of these sites are dedicated to my geofiction activities, but is more about the technical and hosting side of my projects, while is more about the creative aspect.

As my main project, I currently host (an imaginary planet) and serve as one of several volunteer administrators on that site.

On the domain, I host several other imaginary planets modeled on the precedent (i.e. using the "OSM software stack"), which was pioneered by Thilo Stapf in 2012. I have written some details on the technical implementation, on this wiki, under the title HRATE.

On the domain, I host an irregular blog about my geofiction activities.

Who is this guy?

I am a US Citizen. For a long-time I was resident in South Korea, but I relocated to Southeast Alaska since 2018 to support an elderly family member.

My Korean home was in the Northwest suburbs of Seoul. Other places where I have called "home" for long periods of time include: Rural Northern California (where I was born), Mexico City, Minneapolis, Philadelphia and Los Angeles. I also have roots in Northern Queensland, Australia (where my mother is from), so though I have never lived there I have visited quite often. Finally, I spent extended "study-abroad" times, in my younger years, in Paris, France, Quetzaltenango, Guatemala, and Valdivia, Chile, and while in the US Military I was stationed in South Korea and South Carolina.

So I am a bit of a global citizen.

My true home is somewhere imaginary, not yet well-mapped.
