My name is Stephen Kay, though most people I know call me Sven.
I live in Swansea, in a housing co-operative that I helped establish. You can learn more about that here
I’ve done various things for a living, the most interesting of them being construction, though none of them have stuck very well. At the moment I’m mostly parenting.
Since coming to terms with the extent of the mess we’re in I’ve got involved in all sorts of things, from experimenting with grassroots democracy to chaining myself to a coal conveyer to joining my local green party. I’ve also picked up enough craft skills and kit that I can bodge just about anything together so long as it doesn’t involve metalwork or electrics.
I’ve worn a lot of different labels, but this blog isn’t about labels, so I’m going to leave it at that for now.
