Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Artisan, grit of the earth blue collar person who welds intricate
devices, loves doing business, explaining chemistry with stories,
and traveling in expanding but ever more eccentric circles.
I love reading, riding bicycles, making functional things. I wound
up being a part of a small tightly knit group of local micro
manufactures that aim to sell goods to the worldwide middle class
of tomorrow. I used to party with would be artists and highly
skeptical underachieving academics. I would live simply and alone
most of the time except that I seem to have human company almost 24
hours a day. I am an idealist, I adopt ideals that best serve as a
evidence that mine and everyone else's are a gigantic
contradiction. I get really excited about things and ideas that
serve multiple functions. I fell in love intersections and
optionality and may never have time to explain the chaos that
ensued. I love the Idea of a win win, but am starting to suspect
that all good things must come from somewhere else. I may not be
not the biggest fan of my species, but keep plenty of awesome
people around because its good for my health.

practicing my writing but never my editing.

headphones, and even then feel shame.)
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
The free market, the Coffee, the late nights, the east coast
mentality, that good old self guilt, the tire-less humanity, the
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How art history relates to exactly what I'm doing or how I relate
to exactly what art history did.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Who knows, worlds most distractable!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I think cognitive dissonance can be sexy, and see why that might
