About me

Gender MALE
Occupation Activist
Location Arcata, California
Introduction For most of my life I had been uncomfortable with the world. I spent a lot of time in spiritual pursuit. I was interested in Earth First! and read the EF! Journal. In Sept. 1998, while in San Francisco, I heard about an EF! action camp happening in Humboldt. I went to it and was arrested in an action. The following day Gypsy was killed at the same place. I have been involved in direct action campaigns ever since. In early 1999 I overcame my fear of heights to sit in Aradia, an old growth redwood on Gypsy Mountain. In Nov. 1999 I went to Seattle to protest against the WTO, and was tear-gassed and pepper-sprayed. In Humboldt, I have worked on the Gypsy Mountain, Mattole, Hole-in-Headwaters, and Freshwater campaigns
