I grew up in Sonoma, CA in the wine country and moved into the houseboat community when I was 11. I have lived abroad in Canada, attending university in Vancouver. I moved back to the Bay Area in 2010 after 4 month solo travels around the world.
I work as an EMT, teaching emergency medical skills and CPR in San Francisco. However, most of my work hours are spent as an instructor at a rock climbing facility in Berkeley. I run kids programs and coach kids and adults the basics of climbing.
Often, a good day for me is just being outside, keeping my feet moving. Find a new corner of the world or a new street in San Francisco. Its why I lived in Vancouver for 6 years and why I'm happy to be back in the Bay Area.I enjoy climbing, running, jumping, crawling, and dancing when called to do so by some basic instinct. But I am also an old man, a tinkerer and can be industrious at odd hours and sometimes for endless hours. Most of the past 3 years I have spent putting my heart and hands into fixing and living in a funky old houseboat. Albeit lacking in skill, I am willing to use chemicals and power tools with enthusiasm. Everyday I learn exactly how little I know about what goes into the making of a home.
