My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I could be described as a cultural hybrid of punk rocker and mover shaker. I have rough edges and am fighting the good fight. I am not conventional, nor is my life. DIY is my way of getting things done, and that way of life keeps me more connected with other people.

I am calm and collected most of the time, but I am not laid back or carefree.

I question the social practices we do out of hegemony. I am looking for individuals who challenge and are challenging.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Once upon a time, I was going to be an engineer, then I was going to do "something" with art, then was going to be a school art teacher. Now my work life is devoted to 2 non-profit organizations where I teach, manage, and administrate programs involving bicycles, computers, orchestral music, punk music, and DIY ethics and community.

I work with young people to join them on the journey to their own self-discovery, as well as mine, while finding the time to write music for guitar, to start painting again, and learn the carpentry techniques to build any furniture I need. I'm working on a stereo rack.

I ride bikes to get where I have to go if I haven't procrastinated too much, or if I don't have to transport a bulk of supplies to the other side of town.

I make my own peanut butter and cashew butter.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Opportunities to teach, adventure, and create. To do these activities with other people.

Luckily I create those opportunities for myself. You can too.

Alternate list:

companionship
a few tools

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How can I make that? What color is that? How can I be better at solving dilemmas?

I am concerned about the effect we have on the world and each other by making things we don't need and putting them somewhere instead of to some other use:
