I’ve lived in Mexico since 2019. I enjoy riding my bike uphill slowly on dirt roads. I love street food, public space, and human-scale cities. I try to limit my personal belongings to what I can carry under my own power.

I prefer being part of cooperative, democratic organizations, so I’ve helped start or run several housing, food, and worker co-ops. Since 2017 I’ve worked on the Public Utility Data Liberation project as a member of Catalyst Cooperative, where I do software & data engineering in Python. We support climate activists, policymakers, researchers, and others who are trying to accelerate the transition away from fossil fuels.

In a former life I worked as a space explorer, but now I often feel like I’m marooned on a beautiful, dying world.
