I grew up in the forests, adolesced in a city commune, and then spent several years working all over the world in the engine rooms of various seafaring vessels – my favorites were research ships.
I have performed with Shakespeare troupes in public parks, excavated and jacketed a metoposaur clavicle on a paleontology dig, delivered baby goats in subzero temperatures, participated in labor disputes on behalf of a teachers’ union, and shot documentary interviews on civil rights violations. I have played in a steel drum band and I know how to screen print.
I love nature, in all its weird and ambiguous manifestations! I love books and movies! I love Wikipedia!
