About Me

CURRENT MISSION

take it all in and then let go of it

ABOUT ME

I am constantly moving back and forth between urban and rural environments. My earliest memories take place on the family farm where i grew up and i still take just as much pleasure digging in the dirt now as i did then. I love rural environments because i like to live simply, i like doing things myself from scratch. But i also feel drawn to cities - to museums, to street art, to libraries,to colliding cultures and ideas.

PHILOSOPHY

It is in your self-interest to find a way to be tender.

Interests

planting seeds and compost in all its forms, environmental activism, cooperatives, women's and peasant movements.

i like folk art, insects, bicycles, treehouses, bee hives, frozen eyelashes in wintertime, bonfires, sewing, board games, mountains, the ocean, experimenting and triumphing, experimenting and trying again.

Music, Movies & Books

Books: Everything written by Roald Dahl, The Cossacks - Leo Tolstoy, Cat's Cradle/Slaughterhouse five - Kurt Vonnegut, Everything by Farley Mowat, The Golden Spruce, Touch the Earth, The Omnivore's Dilemma, cedar, the weaver's garden, the great gatsby, black swan green by david mitchell

Music: Joanna Newsom, Clap your hands say yeah, Islands, Bjork, Wolf Parade, Alanadale, The Books, Akron/Family, Bill Callahan, The Mountain Goats

One Amazing Thing I've Done

One of the best days of my life was the day I learned to wield a sickle harvesting barley and daikon radishes in a friend's field.

Teach, Learn, Share

i can teach fermenting, sprouting, canning and many other food related things. i know some things about fishing, raising animals, butchery, boats, herbal medicine, making paper, etc.

I want to learn more herbal remedies, languages - nepali in particular, agricultural skills, beekeeping, bicycle powered machines, handicrafts, graffiti, etc.
