Author, rogue systems analyst. True Neutral autistic pro-science anti-authoritarian rural cat fanatic, he/him/they, married. West Coast = Only Coast :)
Here's number one cow cat Tachikoma Inu, empress of the universe, queen of all cats, giving you that regal look only she can:
She also enjoys belly rubs and being held like an infant. My baby is way better than yours, and I brook no dissent :P
Started this blog as an outlet, now it's kind of a thing. I really appreciate all the readers who are into unconventional thinking rooted in science. Before I realized academia is a trap, I published academic research derived from a masters thesis on deforestation and rural electric access in World Development. Research notes on a variety of academic fields available on my Github. Was simultaneously working towards PhDs in Geographic and Environmental Sciences, got through all the course work and proposal fun before walking away with two masters degrees.
Oh, and Medium tells me I'm a top writer in several categories, so apparently folks like my blogging style. Cool!
As for myself - basically, I'm a wierdo. On the outside: boring vanilla white dude who doesn't get out much. On the inside, anarchist fan of Swedish death metal and epic video games who dreams of destroying white supremacy and draining the world's wealthy of their ill-gotten gains, viking style, then reforging it anew.
Spouse is lethally badass, and I'm beyond proud to be wedded to her and always there to back her up as she fights the good fights out in the professional world.
If you're the kind of person who wants to control how other people live, we're not gonna get along. Right, left, center - I cordially loathe all ideologies, especially the ones masquerading as science. Live and let live to the extent possible - that's my creed.
Available for consulting on select projects - narrative design, mixed-methods research, and writing are my primary weapons. You might find them useful support for whatever mission you're on :)
