I love biking every day, thinking about high and low tech solutions to everyday problems, and diverting items from landfills.
I love to take on crazy projects. I once helped build a raft with a large bouncy castle on top of it for a friend's birthday party. The vessel could hold the weight of 30 people and we sailed it 3 miles down the Charles River outside of Boston, singing sea shanties and drinking beer. And last month, I co-organized Boston's Second Annual Cranksgiving Bike Ride. Over 200 riders showed up and we collected over 10,000 pounds of food for several Boston area food pantries. I'm always looking for new big projects to take on!
Mostly in New York, sometimes in Boston.
2) I'm a builder. I've built websites, houses, boats, art busses, pizzas, and pedal powered agricultural equipment.
3) I'm the co-founder of Cranksgiving Boston and am currently planning our second annual ride! COME RIDE WITH US!
4) I am addicted to volunteering. At least a few times a week I volunteer my time doing things like helping younger learners improve their math and science skills, handing out food at a shelter/food pantry, or loading bicycles into a shipping container with Bikes Not Bombs.
5) I bike anywhere and everywhere, regardless of weather. I enjoy doing group rides with Times Up!, Transportation Alternatives, and the Boston Bike Party.
6) During the warmer months, I am an avid gardener and I volunteer my time with a multitude of community gardeners and ecological non-profits. I am also a certified NYC Citizen Pruner and can legally prune any tree in New York City.
7) In general, I do what I love and love what I do.
2) Making out.
3) Lifting up extremely heavy objects (bend at the knees, not at the waist!).
