My self-summary
"Do I contradict myself? Very well, then I contradict myself, I am large, I contain multitudes."
What I’m doing with my life
I grew up in the East Bay with KPFA left on the car radio. It stuck, a background rumbling against the gap between how things are and how they ought to be. The sound fades in and out as I shift attention between political and personal projects.

I sell my time to Google. I give my time to friends, fun, and doing my part to close that gap. I travel. I occupy. I participate. I like when I make art and other things. I'm putting time into an amazing collective house and urban farm.

I used to teach 6th grade science. Before that I ran a homeless youth drop in center. I studied computer science and cognitive science.

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
