Are you interested in coming to meet-ups or in volunteering?
Enthusiasm for non-pragmatic imaginative thinking. Capable, if not unwilling workhorse. Moderately dexterous hands, though generally unskilled and clumsily directed. Avid road cyclist, of the obnoxious lycra and spandex variety. Avid runner, of the awkward hairy shirtless and barefoot variety. Computer games. Urban retrofitting daydreaming. Homebrewing. Daydreaming about permaculture.
Tell your personal story...
Came from a really rural part of southern Hillsborough which was partially victimized by urban sprawl and suburbia. Spent a lot of time thinking about infrastructure and the various distribution networks of grid-based energy, liquid and gas energy, food, and all of the other basic things that relate to physical space and settlement. I went to USF and ended up with BAs in anthropology and religious studies (people and their religion seem to be interesting enough). Lived on the Tampa campus and in North Tampa for about 5 years, the driving sucked. I hated driving 10 minutes to the store that was a few miles away (just outside of walking distance). Later moved to St. Pete and found true potential for great distribution and the sort of lifestyle I want. But at this point, it's just potential and I'm unsure how to bring some of those potentials to fruition.
