About Me


Living without dead time.


I am working on teaching high school kids "Thesis Kombat" which is like Mortal Kombat but with finishing moves based on backing up claims with evidence. I really like llamas but feel uncomfortable around alpacas. I like exploring abandoned buildings, doing handstands and playing harmonica. I'm pretty into fighting fascism.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I played harmonica as I rode naked on top of a freight train rolling by Mount Shasta.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach some Spanish and jujitsu. And a little bit of how to play the harmonica and the spoons. I can cook hash browns and sing sea shanties and tell you all bout conspiracies if you're interested.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I carve spoons too; I will try and carve you one.
