Native Austinite.

I am an avid camper, kayaker, mountain biker. I love being in the outdoors in all seasons and conditions. I ski bummed in Montana, Idaho, Washington, and British Columbia for about 10 years. I spent a couple of years delivering sailboats on the East Coast of the US, the Caribbean, and Central America. I have transited the Panama Canal in a small sailboat.

I recently graduate from school (for a second time) with a degree related renewable energy and am studying for a professional certification. I plan on getting a Permaculture Design Certificate in the near future. I also work at a permaculture (look it up if you don't know what that is) based native and food plant nursery. I feel strongly that what one does for work should contribute to making the world a better place. If that sound silly or hokey to some ... get over it.
