michael-hacker-143008

Name: Gabriel Johnson…if I have a middle name, I don’t know it. Its not on my birth record anyway.

Place of birth: Los Angelas, California

Parents: Don’t know them, but I was born, so I assume I have them.

Ethnic background: Yeah…you’re asking me a lot of questions I don’t have answers to.

Places lived: Los Angelas, Sacremento, San Diego, Ghana, India, Hawaii, and Tucson.

Relationship with God: I’m a little more Buddhist in my beliefs, but I’m not opposed to the idea of there being a higher power.

Overall outlook on life: Letting go gives you power. It gives you power over your suffering, sadness, attachments and past. It’s easier said than done, but it’s how I survive.

Do you like yourself: Yeah. I’m a good dad, a good husband and a good friend. I treat everyone with respect and so yeah, I’m cool with me.

Political leaning: Are you trying to start an internet argument? Whatever…I lean left if that’s what you want to know.

Best way to spend a weekend: Just hanging with the kids and the wife. We barbecue a lot, swim when it’s warm, work in the garden a lot. We’ve decided to try a self-sustaining lifestyle and we have a great garden going on – homesteading is where we see ourselves going. I learned to make soap and stuff…it’s pretty cool. I think it teaches the kids a good lesson.

Biggest trauma: yeah, let’s skip that one.

What does he care about most in the world: Family
