**Also, if you're interested in art and landscape photography, or the rocks that slide around on the playa in Death Valley, you should check out my Indiegogo campaign. I'm pre-selling art prints in order to partially pay for the trip and equipment rental.
How to start? Well, I'm single, sane, healthy and sort of normal looking on the outside, but wickedly creative on the inside, or at least nimble enough to feed myself and pay my rent with my skills and smarts. I have a brain bent for science but fell into art and I can't seem to get out, which is just as well since I enjoy making things, including my own hours. I prefer to be active, exploring trails, paddling the lake or swimming in the Springs when I'm not making something or helping someone else make something, or trying to keep said creations from blowing up or causing NORAD to raise the DEFCON threat level.
I'm adventurous and uber-inquisitive about the world around me, to the extent that I have been known to trek to the middle of nowhere in Death Valley to see places where the rocks move by themselves; jump onto a bus taking biologists into the Chernobyl exclusion zone; or take a three day side trip through Bosnia to the site of appearances by the Virgin Mary, despite not being Catholic, or even religious. I'm skeptical and agnostic, but intrigued by all that there is we don't know, awed by nature and the universe and complete humbled by my small place in them. For those who want to know, I generally score as INTP, with occasional forays into E and S.
