learning, loving, laughing
What I’m doing with my life
Life is simple - have diverse, plentiful, enriching experiences, and minimize harm. I like to advocate for the latter in various ways - which usually leads to the former.
I have a job in a field for which I recieved my master's degree.
I enjoy hiking, camping, large bodies of water, music festivals, billiards, darts, movies, keeping fit, go-karting, people watching, board games, etc.
I’m really good at
having really interesting conversations. ...being courteous, sarcastic, optimistic, forth-right, thought-provoking, etc.
The first things people usually notice about me
Logical. Optimistic. Empathetic. Like to dance. Not interested in celebrities or watching others play sports.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
-I mostly read to learn about the world. I occassionally read fiction as well. A couple books I would recommend include, Debt - The First 5,000 years and Lies My Teacher Told Me.
-Mostly comedies and sci-fi. I watch cable news if I want to see drama or horror.
-Haven't had cable for couple years. Though I like Big Bang Theory, Futurama, Jon Stewart, Jon Oliver, and Stargate SG-1.
-I mostly listen to Slacker Radio, though sometimes I listen to terrible pop radio in the car. I have a diverse collection of artists favorited.
-Lots of raw fruits and vegetables.
The six things I could never do without
bananas & medjool dates
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Consciousness, what countries I want to travel to next, food sustainability, agroforestry, nutrition, my next career, counter-economics, and non-hierarchical local, regional, and global solutions to make communities become more resilient.
On a typical Friday night I am
Hanging out, partying, relaxing, etc. - living life, as they say.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
At one point in time, some of the stardust in me, and some of the
stardust in you, were in a fiery intertwined mesh; and in a hot
explosive eruption, we soared onto a journey that has just come to
an end - after several billion years, we meet again.
You should message me if
Interested in something I have written, enjoy lively conversation,
can't wait for space tourism, want to see good things happen in the
world and have ideas about how to get that done, and have been or
want to go to Iquitos, Peru.
