About Me


summer travel... MEXICO is the goal right now


I'm a pretty chill and silly guy. I live in a small town near where I teach. I practice martial arts, fish, skateboard, pretend to be an artist and poet, dabble in random shit until I lose interest, try to keep the fight alive for social justice, and other amazing shit.


Fuck politics, fuck religion, it's all about being compassionate in all that you do.

That's pretty much it.

Music, Movies, and Books

I love Sheman Alexie, Yusef Kumenyaka, James Write, and lots of other authors.

I love watching movies. I'm a horrendous downloader.

I pretty much love all music but I'm particularly fond of hip hop and silly indie rock.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I've helped guide a student to write his first poem.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you about martial arts, framing a house, catching and cleaning fish, gardening (although I don't have a garden up and running at my new place yet), issues of homelessness in Portland, writing poetry, how to read or be a better reader, stenciling, longboarding, cooking good shit with nothing
