My self-summary
I escaped to San Francisco from Fresno, Ca, 16 years ago and I never looked back. Despite everything I'm still falling in love with this city. For most of that time I've have a tawdry affair with Oakland and I can't keep my hands of NYC.

I'm a hardworking, busy but laid back radical carpenter. I love living and adventure but work and activism come way way first. Usually I'm OK with that. My work is demanding but exactly what I want (an office job would kill me). My activism is demanding but exactly what I want (except for tear gas, there's no good side to that stuff).

I was in the military (don't worry I was a cook during peace time so no PTSD) but went AWOL for 3 years. Antiwar stuff has been my most sustained political work but I'm kind of all over the place when it comes to activism.

I like people in general but the unusual ones are my favorite. I care deeply for those close to me and I'm nice to a fault (that is NOT code for passive push-over).

I love to travel but unfortunately most of my trips were short. The military took me to Oklahoma, Virginia, and Germany. Political work took me to Delaware, Washington, Missouri, Pennsylvania, New York, DC, Maryland, Jordan, Iraq, Mexico, Canada, Cuba, and the Republic of Korea (south). With my family I've been to Idaho, Costa Rica, and Puerto Rico. Some day I'm going to China (and back to Cuba).

I've worked on a number of tall buildings in the Bay Area and am really into heights. I'm much more smiley than my photos indicate.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm trying to make room for a life squeezed in between leftist political organizing and construction work. I'm doing too much at once, loving and hating it at the same time.

My work background is steel carpentry but work lately has involved more painting than anything else. Most of the buildings are pretty old so there's an antique fixture restoration element that's fun. I'm also learning electrical work and furniture-making the hard way.

I'm very active in a variety of bay area political/community struggles. My big challenge is to make time to read and study not just act. I've been an activist since I was 16 and more than anything, it defines my life.

Lately I've made more time for art galleries and archery. I'm thinking of getting a better bow...or restarting my salt water aquarium. The price tag is the same...we'll see.
I’m really good at
Convincing the obnoxious drunk guy harassing everyone to go home, watching other people dance, helping friends move, woodcarving, making sandcastles, and cooking.
The first things people usually notice about me
My smile, optimism, and pony-tail.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Whatever I'm reading watching or listening to at the time. On all accounts I'm all over the place, just depends on my mood.

Movies:
Everything from the worst made Hollywood horror to Battleship Potemkin. I'm a big Star Wars geek. Documentaries, Zombies, Scifi, Cult, Drama, etc. Just celebrated Halloween with a huge horror binge. Now I'm in a noir mood.

Memories of Underdevelopment, Fight Club, Clandestinos, Empire Strikes Back, Everything Is illuminated, Godfather 1 & 2, Y Tu Mama Tambien, Malcolm X, The Wizard of Oz, The Maltese Falcon, Touch of Evil, Princess Bride, District 9, 28 Days Later, Paranormal Activity, Brick, Heat, Nosferatu (1922), 12 Monkeys, Akira, Snatch...

Books:
I read a lot but not as much as I'd like. I tend toward modern history but have a soft spot for Stephen King and Chuck Palahniuk. Just finished "Politics of War" by Gabriel Kolko. Right now I'm reading "Invisible Man" by Ralph Ellison...wow! And then there's Hellboy...
Biography of Ho Chi Minh, Full Dark No Stars, Black Bolshevik, Choke, John Brown (WEB DuBois), Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Stranger to Myself, anything with a vampire that isn't Twilight, The Brothers Reuther, Dune, Dracula (I know I said vampires already but..., anything written AND drawn by Mike Mignola, Ten Days that Shook the World...

Shows:
I'm out of the habit but want back in.
Mad Men, Walking Dead, Breaking Bad, Cowboy Beebop, Shield, stand-up comedy that isn't racist or sexist, Human Planet, Walking with Dinosaurs, , Blue Planet (does anyone else feel like Sir David Attenborough's voice magically makes you smarter?), Wilfred

Music:
Everything from hip-hop to country, but I always come back to Bob Dylan, Nina Simone, Janis Joplin, and Howlin' Wolf. I'm not to crazy about dub step.
Johnny Cash, Mos Def, Black Keys, Woodie Guthrie, Bob Marley, Shins, Leonard Cohen, Alabama Shakes, Van Morrison, Radiohead, NIN, Tom Waits, Tool, APC, Saul Williams, Metalica, Red Hot Chili Peppers, MIA, Pink Floyd, Manu Chao, Sinead O'Connor, Wu Tang, Elliott Smith, Smashing Pumpkins, Dropkick Murphys, Cranberries, Fugees, Soul Asylum, Aerosmith, Michael Jackson, Doors, Run DMC, U2, Public Enemy, Bjork, KRS1, Common, Michael Franti, Sublime, Arrested Development, Los Duggans, Jeff Guttman, Jethro Tull, Rolling Stones, Beatles, Neil Young, Neil Diamond (and not in an ironic way), anything with flute, harmonica or banjo

Food:
I love to eat and cook. I'm currently making my way through a really neat Thai cookbook. There's not much I won't/don't eat. I tend to seek the unusual (I'm the guy who likes balut and durian and I have to go to the store because I'm almost out of Thai fish candy and powdered water bugs). My brothers and I are already planing a big traditional menu Hungarian feast the next time we're together (two of them are chefs and the rest of us hold our own). Oh...I'm not a vegan. But cooking vegan is fun in moderation.
The six things I could never do without
Political activism, coffee, someone close, air, food, and water. I keep changing my mind on the order.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Right now...How to best organize against police brutality, antique door restoration, why my sisig doesn't taste as good as at that restaurant, and Egon Schiele.
On a typical Friday night I am
25% chance - Partying with comrades (probably pool and drinking but could be anything) after a community political forum we put on every week.
25% chance - working late getting ready for a demonstration the next day.
25% chance - reading.
25% chance - watching a movie.
25% chance - doing something really random to meet new people.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I miss my aquarium. Not many secrets. Just ask.
