Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Gratitude and humor in an intense world. I have a background in
film and food justice, and now a graduate degree in Integral
Ecology. I'm at artist-activist-educator, and I'll be working as a
guide in transformation and resilience over the next few decades of
humongous changes on the planet. I have the river confluence I was
born by tattooed on my back, above the Egyptian hieroglyphic for
the word love. I choose tattoos carefully. I have a rabbit. I'm
close to my family. I've traveled a lot. I'm deeply grateful for
all our interrelated lives.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Find my stuff at outsidejosh.com. I make art about spirit and
justice. I'm sharing what I've learned (and always learning) in
often intense and intensely hilarious ways. I sell local raw honey
at farmer's markets. I go for walks under tall trees regularly. I
ride my bike everywhere. My garden is exploding ~ since my house is
finally full of people who (like me) love to plant, sprout, tend,
harvest, ferment, brew, tincture, infuse, seed-save, and sing to
the plants every chance they get.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Paying attention to people. Making everyone feel at home.
Cultivating community. Place-making. Supporting radical emergence
and reassuring boundaries. Timing. Learning the land. Combining
strange colorful produce to make glorious feasts. Sharing earth

The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have weird hair, kind eyes, maybe a cute butt - depends on which
direction you're noticing from. I'm a shape-shifter, I have a range
of looks. My friend just said they noticed I was conscious and

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I'm not sure what we get to keep across incarnations, but from here
it feels like I could never do without the people I love, my
breath, shared meals, music, movement, touch, trees, animals, soil,
water, all those things.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The world we all share. How we can honor life, love, diversity, and
creativity. How we can move past fear and greed, and sow peace and
understanding. How we can have the courage to act, to dismantle
systems of violence and patriarchy and oppression, and show up in
solidarity and collaboration and healing. How to balance trust and
urgency. How to balance revelation and responsibility. Who I might
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
fielding offers for fun interesting things out and about, and I do
dance, mmhmm, that is true, but also happy to stay at home for some
potluck/bonfire/interesting conversation with housemates, or

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I'm looking for transformative relationships - friendships and
loves that challenge, encourage, and nourish each partner's soul
and evolving story in the world. Someone who can talk about
monkeywrenching or solastalgia or poop. Someone who wants to push
on towards camp, but still makes sure everyone on the hike is ok.
