This section provides another dimension of who I am outside of the ivory tower.

  • I am a father with two sons and an amazing partner.
  • I love to garden, save seeds, plant trees, and care for the earth.
  • We have 5 goats, 30 chickens, 2 ducks, a dog, 3 cats, ~110,000 bees, and too many annoying squirrels.
  • I like to build things.
    • In 2014 I built a yurt
    • In 2015 I built a root cellar
    • In 2016 I built a tiny house and tree house
    • In 2017 I built a farm stand
