Biography (retired 9 2021)

More about me

You might find me being active with local food systems, working with honey bees, or spending time with my project — making a phenology planner for beekeepers. Right now, I think I am doing a great job of balancing the amount of time that I spend on the internet with the everything else, including being mentally present while I’m at home. (To read more about balance, see my post here. I will be paring down on the extracurriculars even more in 2021.)

I hope you read my posts and leave comments because I’d love to get to know you. Maybe we could work together sometime.

In addition to the presences under my photo, I have also been found on the internet in a few other places:

I also want you to know that I run a homeshare-style AirBnb where $1 from every night’s stay went to the Sustainable Iowa Land Trust and another $1 to the St. Vincent de Paul Sacred Heart conference
