I want to start a Clash cover band. Do you want to join?
I have a good sense of humor, and mind-blowing karaoke and SQL skills. Mindfulness is important to me. As well as getting my hands in the dirt. Travel is great. I play trumpet in a band, but what I really what to do is direct.

Playing trumpet, composting organic things, growing food and living in a coop house. Yoga (cough, cough). Visiting farms and strategizing about trees. Planning for sustainability. Trying to be a straight white cis-dude with some consciousness.
I’m really good at
Making people laugh. Seeing both sides of an argument/issue. Also
