I try to rely on public transport and my skateboard to get around, but an automobile is necessary in this area. I also own an awesome 1985 VW Westfalia pop-top camper-van (nicknamed “The Toaster”). I love to go camping.
Consider myself a "maker" / DiY person and like to build / fix stuff.
Love, compassion, strength and courage are necessities.
Have a deep appreciation for art, literature, and science.
I have a tendency to wear random costumes to parties and such.
Have attended that crazy “rave / hippy / art festival” thing in northern Nevada a number of times (Burning Man sucks! don’t go) and have helped create a few different giant metal and fire art pieces with The Flaming Lotus Girls. ( http://flaminglotus.com/about-flg/ )
Occasionally I possess wit.
I believe that correlation does not equal causation.
Love, unity, peas, justice, equality, green, renewable, blah blah blah progressive, etc.
Realist with sarcastic tendencies.
I can be rather goofy.
Never let the truth get in the way of a good story.
*Update: After a long hiatus, I have just moved back to Spokane (I grew up here) from San Francisco for family reasons and am reestablishing myself.
