I am a 24 year old anthropologist based out of Florida (former PhD student looking for a new program), also known as Littlefoot on Twitter (that's the name of one of my cats).

I blog over at my site culturologies.wordpress.com and on Medium (@LTF_01) about evolution and human nature, the influence of technology on social systems, and the science of culture. I have also written for several other online magazines which you can find on my website including Areo and Quillette, and my blogposts have been featured on several websites including InsideHigherEd. In terms of my hobbies, I like to drink coffee, write, and flintknap rather ugly pieces from time-to-time.

As an anthropologist, I have a broad curiosity in the nature of human behavior which can be summed up in my three disparate interests:
  1. Research in the perceptual sciences and bioacoustics. I have taken an integrative approach between neuroscience, philosophy, and anthropology in addressing my primary research questions which span ecology, experimental archaeology, and linguistics.
  2. The anthropological approach of mid-20th century neoevolutionists, such as Leslie Alvin White, and resurrecting it by integrating it with the metabolic theory of ecology (MTE). I am fascinated by ramping complexity in the story of human history and the general systems which allow or prohibit it.
  3. Finally, I have an interest in the phenomenon of intelligence, evolution of morality, and cooperation which I have recently been eager in exploring within the framework of historical population movements and shifts in demography.
In terms of tangible things, I don't have too much to offer. What I am offering is perspective through my writing, which I hope you enjoy.
Tiers
Friends
$1 or more per month
This is a basic tier for people who want to pay. Since I do not make art or anything, all I can necessarily do here is give you my personal gratitude!
Kahuna
$5 or more per month
A second tier for people who are interested in checking out what's going on. I'll give you access to see what's coming up for me and what I have in the works.
Ali'i
$10 or more per month
I'll give you access to a Dropbox including stuff I'm working on, book reviews of things I have recently read, and whatever else goes in a dropbox.
Gift Giver
$25 or more per month
All the things above! I am considering expanding this tier so that I can maybe send you a flint-knapped piece of art, but we'll have to see about that.
Goals
4 of 15 patrons
When I reach 15 patrons, I'll turn my Neanderthal language series into a short e-book on Amazon (free for patrons).
