Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am originally from the Hudson Valley of New York, and I am
interested in a wide range of things and people. I'm often told by
people that my group of friends is the most random crew they've
ever seen. We are all very different but when we get together it's
always constant laughter and just the right amount of immaturity. I
love the earth and everything about nature, but in no way am I a
"tree hugger." I don't love animals just because they are cute,
though I do have a deep appreciation for the beauty and awe of
nature. I value earth because of what it means to future
generations and the sustainability of modern society.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm currently teaching at an after school nature immersion program,
and I'm looking to work more specifically in agricultural/farm
education. My goal is to facilitate kids in getting to know a
little bit about where their food comes from so that eventually,
they can make responsible decisions that are both healthy for the
earth and healthy for their bodies.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Cooking, putting thoughts into words, immersing myself in the
current activity, finding culture in America, not wasting
anything/being cheap and simple, taking up new hobbies and brewing
homemade sodas (and beer of course), tapping obscure trees for sap,
eating and drinking wild plants
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Personality-wise, people usually think I'm easy going and up for
whatever. My Aunt calls me a yes-man.
Physically, people always comment on my eyelashes or my curly hair.

I spend too much time reading school stuff and not enough time
reading fun stuff. Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell is by far the most
incredible thing I have ever read, movie was good but read the
book! Everything Michael Pollan touches turns to gold. I love every
single word he has ever put down on paper. The Wind Up Bird
Chronicle by Haruki Murakami was the best hostel book exchange
I like a wide range of entertainment, from documentaries to game of
As for food, I like it all. I am a firm believer that any food can
be enjoyed by any person if done right. But I won't force you to
eat things and I don't hold food aversions against people as almost
everybody has at least a few (the hard candy on the outside of
M&Ms makes me nauseous every time-when I say I like it all, I'm
talking about real, whole foods). But I will ask you to try things
I actually consider myself a picky eater even though all I want is
real natural food prepared right, and if it is, and it comes from
the earth (or especially the sea), and it's safe to eat, I'll eat
it. So somehow I'm a picky eater that eats just about everything.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My dog, though she is getting old and lives at my parents'
Learning (especially anything involving food)
Fishing/being in the outdoors
Good local beer and banter with good friends
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How weird it is that society is where it is and how people think we
are at the epitome of civilization and that we are meant to conquer
nature. Frustrating, but I find it evident in everything I look at.
Basically how our most difficult problems come from consumption and
the military industrial complex. I try to stay aware of my growing
cynical attitude, mostly towards our food and agricultural systems,
and direct it towards productive activities like building my
Pedagogy for teaching and a curriculum to teach younger generations
about these issues. They're the ones that are inheriting this
On the lighter side of "thoughts," I think a lot about food,
schoolwork, my plans to join farmers' markets as a vendor selling
my soda, when I will next get some free time with friends to laugh
until my stomach hurts, my dog, and the woman I will end up with.
Also, trying not to glorify the idea of that woman and eliminating
expectations as much as I can. Good relationships have always found
me in unexpected ways at unexpected times, which is the total
opposite of joining a dating website. Guess I'm lucky to have an
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Doing the total opposite of what I did the previous friday

You are confident in the way you look and feel, you do not care
about expensive clothes or makeup, you reject the notion that women
