My job is very social but I'm an introvert. i need serious time alone. I'm very connected to nature and the woods and water, make art and photography centered on the natural world. I love to make things, make up things, to stand up for what I believe. transformative processes make the world rich. I'm committed to learning and being a part of other people's learning. i like a wide range of music, am very into yoga and hike as much as I can. I need beauty in my life, and adventure. I love new experiences and challenges. I'm a little too serious but I laugh easily-- especially at myself. I'm crazy loyal, empathetic and pretty boundaried. I need exercise and appreciate physical labor, especially farming and gardening, preferably in a hot sun. New ideas, humor, creativity, plants, tasty healthy eating and sustainable living, books about microbiology and natural history, well written novels, poetry, art books, and family are all important to me.
i'm pretty serious about my politics, about anti-racism/sexism/homophobia and about global inequality. I appreciate a good laugh at the expense of self-conscious political correctness, but at the end of the day, we're talking about people's lives. what we do in this life makes a difference, even if you don't believe it or want to.
I'm not much into TV, mostly because once it's on I'm totally sucked in. I stop existing and I don't like the feeling. but some of it is pretty fun.
My community is important to me, my friends/family and my co-workers who I share the world with.
