My self-summary
Having been raised on the east coast, if I’m teasing you, it’s probably because I like you and want you to play with me. If I’m serious I’m probably uncomfortable or underwhelmed. I’ve also had enough time here in the West to soften, align my chakras, and get down with some feelings and needs (total process queen).
What I’m doing with my life
I live with Cedar Moon Intentional Community at Tryon Life Community Farm with my sister and some close friends. This is a big part of my life. We are working towards making TLC farm a learning center where social justice and anti-oppression politics meet physical ecology and land stewardship.

I make my living as a carpenter and as a conflict transformation consultant and energy healer.

Art and music are big parts of my life I play cello and mandoline and am interested in meeting and colaborating with other musicians/ song writters/ producers esp. other cellists, violin, viola or elecronic artists. hit me up.

My values include transformational growth and I am actively working at healing myself; my masculine self from the tyranny of patriarchy, my Irish Euro Pegan self from christian white supremacy and my Pan Fairy Faggot self from homophobia and sexual puritanism. I work on these things with a little help from my feminist men’s group, we call ourselves PAMPs (Person with Access to Male Privilage), Re-evaluation co-counseling, and Magic.
I’m really good at
Making myself laugh (and other people sometimes), keeping my life fluid, spacious and flexible, finding jobs, visioning and planning, working with my hands, building and creating beautiful things, structures, sculptures and music, giving people space and attention for big feelings, having big feelings, being loyal and reliable with my close people, constructive shit talking, speaking truth to power, calling in oppressive patterning, dancing (I’m kind of a sucker for the sleezy trap scenario the kids are into these, dayz wanna go?), story telling, making toys and playing, hanging out with young people.
The first things people usually notice about me
My awkward toothy grin.
