Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Life in the country + homeschool = a dude named me: a
"functionality before form" and "it is what it is" kind of person,
steeped in working with my hands.
Raised on a grain farm in Minnesota, college in Wisconsin (B.S.
Double Major in Chemistry and Dance), moved here for
ballet/contemporary ambitions. Now I work for an artist, welding
aluminum/stainless/copper/silicon bronze sculptures and generally
existing. My varied focus points to a generally expanding
hodgepodge, not completely satisfied, but not in a tiff
Someday, I will have my own farm, with two dariy cows, three
pigs/year, 12 chickens, a horse and a dog (and one ferocious cat).
The garden will be three acres, and there will most definitely be a
root cellar. Ideally, in the first year, there's a mass planting of
fruit trees, but it's not essential to the grand vision. The shop
will have tools and winter projects, plenty of grazing acreage and
at least some forested bits. Next to a river? Ok, that's asking too
much. But everything besides the river is going to happen, if I get
the river it'd be a bonus, but I won't pass up a perfectly perfect
place if it's not next to a narrowish body of water.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Welding a whole bunch. Welding and metal fabrication have been my
mainstays before, through and after college. Although I was on the
path for a lab coat, tactile work has always fit me like a glove.
My dream job is to instruct in a correctional/rehabilitation
environment, but that might mean moving which I am admittedly not
quite ready for.
Otherwise, usually stretching, or doing something unproductive to
unwind. Always making a point to make myself at least one
excessively delicious meal per weekend.
Weekdays are a mix of work, stretching, climbing and being a
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Baking pie. Seriously, I make the best. They're pretty, delicious,
varied and just fucking good!
...and welding: some aerospace quality aluminum, 6G(r) stainless
and generally hot dime on dime action. A beauty all it's own,
nudging a puddle of molten metal with 300 amps.
The first things people usually notice about me

Musak: Just too much to mention, all over the place. This came on
at work the other day, and I can't stop singing:

years of choir were meant for it, but it's just sssoooo good)

Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.

On a typical Friday night I am

Unwinding (out or in). Once a month (Fridays) I get a massage,
sometimes it's Sins of a Solar Empire with my brother, or maybe I'm
crashing early after climbing/work?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I crawl around on my kitchen floor, pretending to dance between the
