About me

I am an activist organizer, and much of my time these days goes to colalction.org a platform for crowdaction. More info about how to crowdact at: crowdacting.org

I am also building a straw bale house this summer, so help is welcome.

I've always sought freedom and adventure. At 17 i went to Australia for a year as an AFS exchange student (1990, Melbourne) - www.afs.org. That began a 15 year love affair with travel and languages. I worked teaching the language of the empire in Mexico, Cuba, Russia, Poland, Turkey, Oman, Czech Republic. I spent years traveling via "Pasporta Servo" (www.tejo.org/ps/) - BeWelcome for esperantists! Tired of working, I wound up in Barcelona, where i spent several years stealing buildings and land and putting down roots in an community of 30 people mainly involved in activism and environmentalism. Check out the website: www.canmasdeu.net. I am fascinated by workshops on love, intimacy, and sex with a group in california: HAI.org/
