About me

Industry Government
Location Pasadena, California
Introduction Hey all, I'm Nate. I'm a car-less transit user, slash bicyclist. I'm a grad student at Cal Poly Pomona's Urban Planning school, an intern with Metro's tiny "Bike Department", and my parents' son. As the Blogfather similarly likes to say about his blog, Nothing here is true. Which means I am most definitely NOT a spokesman for MTA, Cal Poly Pomona's URP program, or any other institution I'm involved with (love them though I may), in any shape or form. Find me elsewhere on the Web (for other fictions) at Flickr, LibraryThing, and Myspace (Facebook, too).
Interests Urban Planning, books, magazines, reading, libraries, taking pictures, playing basketball, nonviolence, social justice, Christian thought and actions, progressive politics, conservative thought, sociology, community building, chess, spades, alternative news, creative nonfiction, poetry, athleticism and physical skills, eating good food, exploring the world

Why don't you ever wear a scarf? It doesn't need to be cold outside for your neck to feel naked.

Scarves are for juggling.
