i'm someone who is easy going and positive. i run and bike a lot. i enjoy cooking and eating yummy vegan meals. i try to avoid participating in violence against the planet and it's inhabitants. i work for a small non-profit that i co-founded in july 2003 called olympia salvage, we divert quality used building materials from going into the wastestream mainly by deconstructing homes and other buildings and reselling those materials to our community at affordable prices. i also organize mountain trail running races and run about a dozen races a year on the vasque ultrarunning team. a lot of my friends here in olympia are muscians so i tend to get to see/hear lots of great homemade music and hope to one day make time to learn to play an instrument so i can join in on the fun.
