To soak it all in, to learn as much as possible and to keep my eyes open.
Compassionate and curious. Hungry and observant. Creative and mindful. Generous and adventurous. I am very interested in local communities, local food, anti-capitalist movements, gardening, educating, getting educated and generally doing my share to help out in the world as much as possible. I am inspired by the work and minds of Naomi Klein, Howard Zinn, Brecht, Noam Chomsky, Amy Goodman, Michael Pollan, and others.
Compassion and personal growth. These are my reasons for being, in all their diverse manifestations, forms, opportunities, obstacles and lessons. This includes meeting as many people from around the world as possible to learn from and many experiences and backgrounds as possible. New perspectives and ideas help shape my world view and my idea of purpose and priority.
