My self-summary
I'm interested in plants, fungi, biology, random trivia, experimenting, eco-technology, urban farming, and bike fixing. I like to try new foods, and I really enjoy cooking.

I sing and play Guitar, Banjo, Ukulele, Bass and now electric violin (but not too much yet). I jam very occasionally.

I bike everywhere, all year round, often with my 11 year old son it's a good way to tire him out as well as get around. I'm looking to meet new, interesting people and maybe develop deeper connections with someone.
(Also, his mom and I have a good friendship and co-parenting relationship, makes for very little drama)
What I’m doing with my life
Running a food production business. Trying to figure out how to close the cycle and use all my by products to grow more food. I am into Eco-technology both out of self-interest, and in my work life.
I’m really good at
Building and fixing bikes
Cooking
My son says "being a dad"

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Food (both eating and in relation to the environment), finishing my masters dissertation. I've been fooling around a little with some modernist cuisine ideas - I can tell you why you might want an ultrasonic device in your kitchen.
You should message me if
You want to go for a road bike ride, or a mountain bike ride (in the Don Valley or elsewhere)
You, like me, are happy to meet new people, learn new things and continue on a journey - not reach and endpoint.
You want to know what that mushroom is that you found in the park!
