Welcome to my website! My name is Eric Garza, and I live in Vermont’s Champlain Valley. I earn my living as an educator, speaker, consultant, and more generally as a scholarly entrepreneur. You can often find me wandering Vermont’s forests and fields fishing, hunting, foraging for wild edible and medicinal foods, or searching for that perfect sapling to turn into a fast, durable hunting bow. I am a proponent of minimalist living, invest my time and resources in various types of anti-oppression work, and have longstanding interests in functional fitness, martial arts, philosophy, anthropology and archeology, and history. I also produce A Worldview Apart, a podcast about the power of perspective in the 21st century.
