Calvin Stalvig (he, him, his) is a cultural anthropologist, teacher and artist. He lives in Red Hook, Brooklyn, has a plant collection, makes food that nourishes and fortifies hearts, and pinches dollars with his Minnesota huni in order to spend them on morning coffee and public baths in foreign lands where people have stories that are similar but different than theirs. <3 Calvin comes from Northern Wisconsin.
