I'm originally from Arkansas, USA. Was raised working on my grandparents home garden, where they grew most of their diet and canned most of it to save for emergencies. I love cooking and was what I set out to do after high school but ended up in the IT field and Cell Phone Tower work. I am very adventurous and do a lot climbing, which is how I got into the Cell Phone Tower industry. I worked on that for 7 years and then got the Life Call to move to Costa Rica and help my best friend do something with his land.
We started with a aguaponics project. Being from the IT field and from the YouTube / Google generation, I dove right into the internet to get more information on what to do and how others were doing it. This lead me to the rabbit hole called "Permaculture". I did a lot of online classes and lots of research into the subject. I did all this research 2 years before I even got my PDC. A local friend was doing Permaculture Workshops which i participated in and helped out in the teachings. We had a consultation with a Permaculturalist and from there turned our property into a permaculture farm.
Now I have lots of experience in Aganuaponics, Permaculture Design Techniques, Food Forests, Natural Building ( cob, bamboo, earth bag, rammed earth, and earthships ), Rainwater catchment, soil testing and amendments, Composting Methods, Black Solider Fly Larva Production, Mycology Services, Holistic services, Trash programs to become 99% trash free, Journeyman Electrician, Grey and Black water management, Animal Husbandry ( Chickens, Ducks, Horses, bees, and domestic animals), Tree trimming, Community Building, Biodynamics, and the list go on. I have doing this work for the past 2 years and have immersed myself in the Permaculture Rabbit Hole. I have a strong passion to ride the world of Non-biodegradable waste and finding a non-combustion form of renewable energy. I also have a few projects in the works doing reforestation, domestic animal services, and connecting farms together.
