i play bass...and sometimes guitar, drums, baby tambourine, sticks, desert rocks, pine branches, or harmonica. i have an awesome dog and even awesomer wife. i travel the desert, mountains, coast, temperate rainforests, chapparral, monadocks, and even cities. i won't let those robots defeat me (or you). i like non-profits. i LOVE chocolate. i like doing nerdy stuff like measuring trees. this is an account of my adventures in these likes (and dislikes).
