About John Schinnerer

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.
