Jonathan Hayes (1973 - )

After several wet salmon seasons in Alaska while working in a cannery, and then hoboing along the Columbia River of Washington, Mr. Hayes joined fruit tramps and migrant workers in a red delicious apple orchard and then drove a John Deere tractor before each sunrise onto the slippery, dewed grass of agrarian reform. Today, however, he is a barnacle-covered hermit crab, scurrying from class to sea lettuce in the tide pool of San Francisco State University by the not-always-peaceful Pacific littoral. Look him up sometime.
