I like to write, read, make music, grow food, and try out all kinds
of bold/insane ideas.
What I’m doing with my life
Currently I am building (preparing?) my own permaculture farm out
east of town. It's a lot of machete and shovel, as I have more time
than money, but such is life. When I'm not doing that and am trying
to put money in my pockets, I have two-ish jobs. One working in a
food trailer, and another very part time one working with multiply
disabled children. I also try to spend all my down time reading;
from poetry to practicalities.
I can also be found foraging in Barton creek or walking around town
mushroom hunting on wet days.
I’m really good at
Using my brain. I finished college, went to grad school, found it boring, and dropped out. That's all old-hat now, but I'm really good at flexing dem neurons.
I'm also (usually) good at listening to the things people tell me. Sometimes my head is an echo-chamber full of the things that are said to me. Sometimes I think really hard about it, sometimes it all turns into little songs.
The first things people usually notice about me
Is that I'm quiet, or that I'm halfway through a project but no one could tell you what I'm up to.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books(actually authors): Some favorites currently include BLAKE!,
Heidegger, Nietzsche, Byron, Kierkegaard, Wilde. As well as long,

The six things I could never do without
2. My machete.
3. A big hat.
4. A camelbak.
All other items are negotiable.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Technology and design! Especially of the green kind. I spend a lot
of my time scheming grand little schemes in this direction; some of
which have come to fruition, others hopefully on there way. I also
tend to spend a lot of time with my head in books of philosophical
or historical themes.
On a typical Friday night I am
The day of the week is not a good indicator of what I will be doing. My job doesn't work on a weekly rotation, so I usually couldn't tell you what day of the week it is.
You should message me if
You're into food, nature, or books. Or if you have something you want to tell me. Or just say hello, if you say pretty much anything I'll at least try to respond.
