Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I was born and raised in Granite City Il. When I was 17 I moved
out. I went to university for music and philosophy. I waited tables
in college. I've been in lots of bands and seen a lot of the
country because of them.
I am rich in friends. I have so many close friends, I could fill
books with tales of endearment and debauchery. Since I had my own
place before any one in my circle of friends, my house has been
host to 16 roommates, many people without any other place to turn,
and some of the best parties I've ever been to.
A few years ago I began to focus more on things dear to my heart.
Getting to know my family better, and sustainable living
strategies. I've helped start two farmers markets and eight
community gardens in my home town and currently sit on committees
for both organisations.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working on my business. Also I'm a Master Gardener. I have a small
orchard, and I raise fruits, vegetables, and chickens. I'm a good
carpenter, and a respectable electrician. In my free time I help
take care of my grandma. And I offer free designated driving
services on big drinking nights.
But this is the big thing for me right now....
I'm rebuilding my home (where I lived for the last 14 years) I lost
to fire last spring. So, before it burned, I lived off the grid. I
had solar panels, a battery bank, a greenhouse room addition,
passive solar, a well, rain catchment systems, & a kick ass
wood stove. Really? Yes, it was the shit. With only property taxes
and insurance to pay, annual expenses were dirt cheap.
So aside from losing all my things, this has turned into one of the
best things to have happened to me. In the old place, all those
improvements previously mentioned had been retrofit onto a small,
late 60's trailer. Now I get to upgrade and do things right from
the beginning. This new place is going to be awesome, and way
bigger! You might even see it on the news next year. Well, maybe
not. But who knows?
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I can flare each nostril independently.
Building things, playing music, listening, abstract concepts,
cooking from scratch, finding patterns, shuffle board, lucid
dreaming, situational awareness, mispelling, whistling, reciting

I've read a lot on permaculture and other gardening methods.
Other than that I'd be lying if I said I read much.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
You'd be surprised how much one can go without.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How things are made, interactions of complicated systems, how small
we are & how much smaller things get, how to circumvent
If I'm not careful, I'll have Jump in the Line by Harry Belafonte
and the main theme to Jurassic Park on loop on my internal ipod all
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Playing music. Creating mischief with dentists from out of town. At
home, in slippers, watching my stories.
