I am a city boy with a country heart. I have lived, worked, and learned on two different organic farms. I learned the ins and out of organic farming including how to milk goats, make pickles, and how to drive a tractor. I also got to teach kids how to plant seeds, weed, harvest, and cook veggies. I loved living right on the Appalachian Trail, but missed my friends and the buzz of the city life.
What I’m doing with my life
Now that I am back in the city, I have the best of both worlds. I currently work at a nature center on 350 acres of conservation land. I get to teach kids how to climb trees, build stick forts, the difference between frogs and toads, and how to build a vermicompost bin. There is so much to learn from the world around us!
I am always looking for an adventure either in the city or out in the woods.
Also taking photos, writing books, knitting blankets, and baking bread.....
I’m really good at
Vegan cooking and baking (including my own Challah recipe)
starting a knitting group without knowing how to knit
assembling puppets out of things found around the house
exaggerating and embellishing real life stories to the point that
they border fiction
keeping the USPS afloat with all the snail mail I send
The first things people usually notice about me
My long hair. I am growing it out to donate it. Thinking of cutting
it soon, but have become attached to it. (more like it is attached

I spend a lot of time thinking about
What my next adventure will be.......
On a typical Friday night I am
Dancing, walking, tree climbing, sledding, biking, singing, drag
show watching, baking, puppet making and drinking.
I guess there is no real 'typical Friday night' for me
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have a thing for overalls
