Music, Movies, and Books

This American Life and other NPR and PRI programs. Love bluegrass, rock, jazz, folk, world music and I'm always open to new tunes. Music is great and live music is even better.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

So many but....maybe cage diving with great white sharks in South Africa

Teach, Learn, Share

In the not to distant past I built a solar greenhouse (sounds redundant right) from invasive trees, locally grown straw bales, adobe derived from local sources, and high tech materials. Works great, I grew 6000 native plants in 2008. I know a lot about habitat restoration and conservation too.

I would enjoy learning just about anything. Specifically, I am interested in rock climbing, tree climbing and sailing.
