My name is Adam, and I am a Michigan transplant living in the foothills of the North Cascades. I’ve lived here since 2003, and have hopped around the North Sound from Seattle to Bellingham to Darrington to my current abode in Arlington located in Snohomish County. I have a beautiful wife, Alexandra, as well as one 2 year old son, Corbin, and a 1 year old daughter, Zoa. I work full-time at a company that would probably rather not be named helping to connect the deaf and hearing worlds.
I’m also a full-time student, pursuing a degree in Environmental Policy. I practice (poorly) Rinzai-flavored Zen Buddhism, I home brew, I go for walks with my family and generally keep things fairly low-key when I’m not at work or doing homework. I’m also an amateur photographer. You can see some of my work here as well as my and my wife’s photography business page here.
I’ve been interested in politics for years, but it is only recently that deep ecology and other influences started to shape my present outlook.After living here for 8 years, I’ve finally made it a priority to do more hiking, get to know the salmon and the trees and be more locally ecologically in-tuned.
I’ve always loved writing as an art form, and so I began blogging a few years ago, mostly just Buddhist-flavored blogs, but I’ve left all those behind to focus on this blog. I hope you enjoy.
