(projects i'm involved in)
My professional background spans from finance to multi media until my radical shift into designing sustainability. I've found that I was engaged creatively and intellectually as an engineer and fulfilled socially when selling equities, but nothing compared to the integrated creativity, intelligence, social awareness, and ecological literacy when designing for interdependence with the Earth.
I began practicing permaculture after taking my PDC adapted for urban landscapes in 2009. I quickly began erecting compost outhouses and farming at a nearby farm and B&B. I've orienting toward working with natural and recycled materials in a permaculture context after training with folks at Earthship Biotecture in NM. I'm a proponent of healing with nature. I have a passion for medicinal plants and foods as well as methods for harvesting nutritious water and growing soil.
My intention is to create as much meaningful positive transformation in my time on this wonderful planet. I'm currently offering a dryland rainwater harvesting workshop in NM in conjunction with Earthship School and Brad Lancaster. The hands-on workshop is scheduled for August 12-16th on the (Earthship's intentional Community) Greater World Community site in Taos. Also, working with private and community organizations on regenerative design projects for NYC. Last thing I'll mention, I offer organic smokable and soakable teas with intentional herbal blends through the brand dropping-seeds.com.
