I moved from Jacksonville Florida to Denver summer of 2012 in search of grand mountain adventures and good folks to have them with. I enjoy building bikes out of frames I find on the side of the road, rock climbing and bouldering as much as I can, writing song's about starships, riding my bike off of really high things. Progressive, feminist, former member of the Jacksonville food not bomb's and a founder of the jax midnight mass. In a poly relationship with a lovely young lady! For more info just ask!
I've discovered that a plant based diet is the most effective and responsible diet for the sake of our bodies, the lives of other animals, and the general welfare of the earth on the whole.
What I'm really looking for can be best phrased in the words of Kimya Dawson, " A part time lover and a full time friend." This is what I feel is truly important. Sex is just a thing, (a pretty amazing, fun, earth rattling thing) but what really matters are the friendships that go along with true intimacy. I'm GGG and hope you are too!
What I’m doing with my life
My plans include climbing a few mountains, and riding my bike through the streets.
Im an Outreach Counselor at a homeless youth shelter and a part time mechanic at Denver Bike Sharing, that cool little non-profit that provides all those red bikes to the city of Denver.
I just started up a new band! Gritz Gaskan
Getting back into Yoga.
Welding is a blast, Freak bikes are a thing of glory- Tall bikes, swing bikes, leaners. I feel when someone is learning to ride a freak bike it puts them back into the exact same mode as when they were first learning to ride a bike, along with that amazing sense of accomplishment the first time they climb up a tall bike!
I’m really good at
Playing Music. Riding my bike long distances. Building Freak Bikes.
Cooking Vegan Food! Getting decent at Climbing.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm a pretty big mixed guy with dreads on a bike.

The six things I could never do without
My Bike, My Mac, My Freinds, My Future, Music, The Knowledge that at any moment this whole society thing could just up and self destruct.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Music, Bikes, and whatever's is in between. Why society has been
set up in such a ridiculous and bullshit way and how to challenge
On a typical Friday night I am
Biking the streets looking for some good music.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Every now and then I watch really sad movies just so I can get in a
good cry. It feels amazing!
You should message me if
I can be honest with you and vice versa. I want to meet folks that
have interesting perspectives and can challenge my way of thinking.
Anyone who is down for adventure, some yoga in the park,Cooking
some vegan food, or just a casual bike ride.
