As of late 2018, I am on an extended sabbatical, wandering the Earth by bike with my laptop.
- Liberating Public Electric Utility Data, alongside the other members of Catalyst Cooperative, in order to help shape narratives and policies about climate change, and our energy systems. As a side benefit, I get to study electricity markets, power systems, machine learning, data science, and cloud computing platforms.
- Becoming fluent in Spanish, to better understand the Mexican American culture that I’ve been surrounded by for much of my life, but separated from by white supremacy.
- Exploring cooperative urban development strategies, in the hopes of creating more equitable, accessible, sustainable cities… or at least understanding what they might look like if we wanted to create them.
- Documenting my cognitive journey on Amateur Earthling, by writing about the intersection of cooperation, economics, sustainability, climate change, energy systems, cities, social justice, housing and transportation policy.
