  • Description

    My name is Anaximander (it wasn’t my idea) but I also go by my middle name, Jason. I am from a small town north of Boston, Massachusetts, USA, but I have worked all over the United States, on land and at sea. I am good with my hands, and have put them to work in many different jobs (See “Skills” section below). I am a seasoned traveller, having lived out of a backpack for over a year before upgrading to a van. I have been to 20 countries and 41 U.S. states, but there is much more of the world I would like to see. I hold both US and German passports.
