Good day strangers and acquaintances of the Internet Super Highway.
I’m about ½ of the team over here at alfholl and wanted to take this opportunity to tell you a bit about myself.
I’ve been an office worker most of my life working in Sales & Technology and while I enjoy many aspects of it I am really trying to guide my career towards something a bit more fulfilling in a community sense. As I get older I realize it’s important to NOT sit at your desk for 8+ hours a day and do something you will ultimately find rewarding. That being said…I do still have a job largely focused on office work….but I recently relocated to the lovely mountain city of Nelson, BC where work life balance is much more focused on.
I’ve been volunteering pretty extensively the last several years which has given me an amazing breadth of connections and exposure to different communities. Most of my volunteering has in, some way or another, been related to alternative energy, alternative living and minimalism. I’ve also been trying to become much more involved in permaculture and gardening (even farming) the last couple years too.
I also enjoy sailing, canoeing, kayaking, camping (both winter and summer, usually backcountry) and long walks on the beach where I can find dead things to poke them with a stick.
Thoreau, my parents and Bill Watterson are my biggest influences on my life
Anyways, that’s a quick overview of me. For more information see our manifesto.
