Originally from France, my entire family moved to Los Angeles when I was just a kid. That was many years ago though. I have since received degrees in French Literature, Geography and Environmental Studies. I currently works in the financial industry as a commodity broker. My interests in arts and other fields has provided me with a great deal of experience in a wide variety of enterprises including photography, the Orphan Dinner Series and the Moveable Feast, a custom bicycle dinner table art piece.
My interest in Permaculture has a design science is fairly recent however I have had quite a interest in many of the topics addressed in my first PDC and had previously participated in various project relating to Permaculture in one way or another for years but not necessarily in name. My PDC confirmed for me that the knowledge I had acquired over the years was time well spent. I would say that for me, everything started with a book I read back in 2001, The Web of Life by Fritjof Capra. It provided me with a grand view of life and a very pragmatic view of the world.
After taking my PDC, I am interested in getting more practical experience in various Permaculture techniques in order to widen my skill. This includes gardening, aquaponics, natural building, innovative uses for refuse and business development. I would very much like to find and participate in local projects that will help me get this practical experience to eventually provide me the skills to develop my own property in a few years. I am currently helping a friend with an orphanage project in Africa that seeks to include Permaculture principles within its organization.
