About Me === Recent Update ===

Please let me know if you want to come visit.
=== Recent Update ===

I strive to communicate honestly and openly about my emotions with the people who are close to me. I greatly value my free time and am willing to work very hard to make sure I keep as much of it as possible.

I'm very optimistic and work to keep myself that way by actively seeking out information that gives me hope.

I go after my dreams and don't give up easily. I strongly value community and intend to live within communities throughout my life.

I want to help make the world a better place by encouraging responsible economic activity (socially responsible investing, right livelyhood, fair trade, community based currency, etc.)

Food is also very important to me. I try to eat as organic and local as possible, especially when it comes to meat. As a result, I cook the vast majority of my own meals. Yes, I know I'm unusual. I'm a 24 year old man who can cook! I generally tend to eat vegan, but when I can get local, grass feed, organic meat I love it!

It is very important to me to lead by example and to walk my talk. I try to integrate my values into my daily actions whenever possible (thank you to my x-girlfriend Julie for helping me on integrating my values and my daily actions).

I like to surround myself with people who have similar values and goals, but want to keep an open mind and approach to dealing with people from all walks of life.

Wild Fact About Me I've never held a full time job and I never intend to do so. Don't think this means I don't like to work, I just don't like a boss telling me what to do and when to do it.
My Philosophy (This changes frequently, but for now...) In the process of gaining wealth, do not forget about Self.
What Gives Me Hope Taking extra time to seek out news about positive things going on in the world.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by Decentralize power.
What/who changed my life and why Living in a hippie commune for 3 months when I was in college changed my life because it helped me see that my ideals are worthwhile and actually can work in the world, while also helping me see that there is still plenty of work for me to do.
What Bugs Me  
What Scares Me  
Role Models Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King Jr., Amy Domini, Muhammad Yunus
