My self-summary
I'm an artist, writer, journalist, philosopher, innovator, tinkerer, researcher, wild plant enthusiast, website designer and videographer/editor. Traveler, anarchist, activist, anti-civilizationist. I dont often label myself, but if you search here by keyword...

I don't like to be a slave to industrial civilization and work to pay rent. Fuck all that. There's a revolution going on and I don't have time to waste. None of us do.

My claim to fame so far was creating a small business that uses bicycles to pick up people's food scraps and take them to backyard composters. It's a pretty successful business now, but I gave it away to a friend after the first year because he was way better at running it.

I once ran for Mayor of Langford, BC, but have little interest in electoral politics. Actually, I have great interest, but am jaded and cynical and wish to see the entire system dismantled.
What I’m doing with my life
Dismantling systems of oppression. Building structures of resilience. Main focus right now is resistance to industrial logging and the carbon corridor projects (pipelines, tarsands, LNG, Fracking, etc). Hopelessly broke and unemployed because such pursuits pay not, but having healthy ecosystems and respecting indigenous sovereignty is a much bigger reward. (Though I have a small web design/hosting business I am trying to get off the ground. SO I actually spend a lot of time on the computer making websites, learning about html, css, php, etc, messing around with images, etc. I am learning to accept digital arts as being as valid as any other. Somewhat less sustainable and tainted by whatever nastiness goes into the technology, but still an art...)
I’m really good at
Writing, strategizing, bullshitting, identifying wild plants and their uses, making biodiesel processors and converting diesel engines to run on straight vegetable oil. Computer stuff. Editing video. Creating nifty projects. Cooking.
The first things people usually notice about me
Geez, I haven't a clue.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: My Year of Meats and All Over Creation by Ruth Ozeki. Deep Green Resistance by Kieth, McBay and Jensen. Earth's Blanket by Nancy J. Turner. And the greatest book ever published is Wild Plants of the Pacific Northwest, by Jim Pojar, Andy McKinnon, et al.
The six things I could never do without
Wild Plants
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Resistance to colonialism, capitalism, heteropatriarchy, ecocide, misogyny, and the various other forms of oppression and destruction that characterize modern industrial society.
How I'm going to get food, or money to buy food.
What I should write about.
The next big project I can pull off.
And ok, I'll be honest, I think about love/companionship/sex/intimacy/friendship
On a typical Friday night I am
Reading, writing, watching a movie, interneting, having dinner with friends, attending some kind of cultural event if I'm in the city. There is no 'typical' with me.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Have struggled with depression and anxiety for a long time, but manage to not let on most of the time...
You should message me if
you're thinking, hmm, should I message him? even if you're not the kind of person to send that first message...especially then...
