I am child of Colorful Colorado and a citizen of the world.
I am always searching for truths that we can all live by, which celebrate diversity, respect individuality, and promote real democracy.
I love to play with language, images, and ideas.
I believe that knowledge does set us free, and that the manipulation of knowledge and fear is a large part of what has held humanity back from solving problems that are enormous, but not unsolvable through patient perseverance.
I see the universe as infinitely interconnected, incomprehensibly complex, but not in and of itself incomprehensible.
I currently live in the mountains of Central Mexico, after having spent seven years in the Southern Cone nations of Uruguay and Argentina.
