About me

Hello there, I'm Satya!

  • I live at The Benson Place Blueberry Farm and I love it here.
  • See the Me on the web section below for a overview of my online profiles.
  • See my Now page for a hopefully-updated bit about what I'm doing now.
  • My name is complicated. Short version is: I am Satya Benson, and I use satchlj online. Long version here.
  • I live in western Massachusetts, where I've been since 2006. I went to the Hartsbrook School in Hadley for my early childhood education, and I homeschooled most of elementary school and all of highschool. Now I'm a student at Williams College.
  • I have too many domain names

The Who Is Satch Scoop

  • Student of mathematics and cognitive science
  • Shakespeare nerd, director, and actor
  • Computer and website meddler
  • Farmer boy
  • Nature guy (building fires, not getting lost, identifying trees, doing this)

Music Tastes

I like long walks on the beach. But more than that, of course, I like Pink Floyd, Yes, Mountain Heart, the Beatles, and lots of fiddlin' jams, mind blowing classical compositions, and snippets of birdsong, from the beginning of music way back in the day all the way through to the present. I also play the violin :)

Other great bands and musicians: Gentle Giant, Fleetwood Mac, , Black Country New Road, Camel, black midi, Neutral Milk Hotel, Genesis, Jacob Collier, Van Der Graaf Generator, King Crimson, Radiohead, the Grateful Dead, Jethro Tull, Joanna Newsom, Gil Scott-Heron, Arden Lloyd, Peter Gabriel, David Bowie, Paul Simon (and Simon & Garfunkel), Peter Paul and Mary, The Band, Joan Baez, Liz Carroll, Crosby Stills & Nash, the Gaslight Tinkers, Solas, The Decemberists, The Flaming Lips, and (last but not least) the great Django Reinhardt.

Me on the web

I have an old website on Google Sites (which is shameful) here. Most places online you can find me as satchlj.

Off the web

  • Some cheese and photos of the farm where I live
  • My friend Thomas has a website too. It runs Wordpress, which means it's way less cool than mine, but he is afraid of coding and terrified of the terminal.
  • My other good friend Santiago has a website which he hasn't really set up yet.
  • My girlfriend Clara has a website on Wix, which is awful software and a horrible service, but the content there is really good.
  • My sister Junie has some photos you can look at.
  • My friend and gastronomy professor Locke Meyer can be found here.
