(projects i'm involved in)
I currently live much of the year in the southern portion of the Cascadia bioregion of North America. I occasionally return to Hawai'i, where I previously lived for nine years after graduate school and four years before. I have a Master's degree in Whole Systems Design with a focus on cultural and ecological designing. My work integrates permaculture and keyline design, appropriate technologies, and human relating and regenerative governance systems.
I am a teacher, consultant, and practitioner who works with public, private and non-profit clients, with a mission to demonstrate, teach and inspire abundance and peace.
I enjoy human-powered outdoor recreation and transportation, being in and on the water, singing and playing guitar, building unique structures, and pushing my edges.
All but final mulching and planting out are complete for another Watson wick based biofilter for domestic black and gray water.
