When I was younger I was sure that interesting experiences made interesting people, so I spent some time off the beaten path. I started playing the banjo and right after high school I hitchhiked across the country, which was a bit foolish and a bit awesome. It brought me face to face with a lot of people I wouldn't normally meet and really broke me out of my bubble.
A little older and wiser, I studied math at UC Santa Cruz and then got my master's degree in the Liberal Arts at St. John's College. It was fascinating to read through the history of human thought.
Over the past few years I've been a farmer, a journalist, a tutor, and now a bicycle courier in SF to make sure ends meet.
