Id Eco Super Eco is brought to you by a guy named Dave.
Born and raised in central Maine, Dave, as a young adult, found his way to the Boston area for a double undergraduate degree in geology and sociology, and thereafter to the Washington DC area for graduate studies in physical geography. His work has taken him through an array of fields including the environmental sciences and water resource planning, musical instrument sales and quality control, and even a stint in the toy and game industry. The occasional odd job as freelance copywriter and substitute wedding band saxophone player are peppered in for good measure. Currently, twice-daily written musings (mostly along the lines of good, interesting, and fascinating tidbits from the world of science news) may be found at Tonic.com.
A probable bout of tinnitus that was actually interpreted to be the mothership’s beacon frequency (along with a smidge of wanderlust and eagerness to shake things up) prompted Dave to once again leave the State of Maine in late 2000, arriving in San Francisco after a week-long cross-country drive.
Since late 2006, Dave lives with his impossibly kind and charming partner (as of 2008, make that spouse, yo) in Oakland, CA, where he does his level best to pick up a pen, a paintbrush, a saxophone, or fire up the word processor in an effort to achieve some manner of creative flow during his free time.
Dave’s pet peeves include raisins in baked things, papercuts, gristle, and right wing talking points. He enjoys a well-crafted Belgian-style ale (or, rather, used to until gluten went out the window, now I fancy a nice Pinot), the song stylings of Maceo Parker, his local farmer’s market, and a most-certainly pathological level of writing implement hoarding. That’s not your Sharpie. That’s MY Sharpie.
