My story, huh? That’s a lot of ground to cover… so here are the basics. I am a cheap-skate and a life-long student. I enjoy making things from scratch. My interests include astronomy, geology, wild foods, ceramics, fungi, human interactions, saving the planet, and generally living lightly. I have been vegan for about eight years, and although it’s important to me, I don’t think I come across as a complete weirdo or fanatic… not for that reason, anyway!
I’m trained as an elementary school teacher, but I’m doing other work right now. I live in the upper Sacramento valley in California with my partner and two cats. I’m glad to have found this site. As someone who is curious about the world and loves to be helpful, I think it’s a good fit!
