Originally from New York, I moved to San Francisco just over two years ago. Before that I had studied Anthropology and Philosophy and earned my BA at the University of Vermont. I grew up spending a lot of time outdoors and my parents, mom especially encouraged me to explore the natural world. I'd very much like to keep that exploration going, however nownow with more clear intentions than simple curiosity.
After a short time spent in SF I took a cob building workshop in Northern California. These 2 weeks showed me a totally different lifestyle that was possible and I really liked it. From there I went back to SF and wanting to explore deeper earned my PDC from UPISF. Learning about permaculture in an urban setting was transformative and uplifting.
Now I am living in Cusco, Peru and am working with the Qero people, perhaps the last descendants of the Inka who had built Macchupicchu. With many of these people being displaced for economic reasons, and loss of land to mining operations, a few Qero elders intend to build a temple and community gathering site in Cusco. I am here to empower them by adding the lens of Permaculture and sustainability. I an must grateful for the opportunity to do this work, and hippie the work extend beyond this site
I am open to all help that may be offered, particularly from any natural building experts or people with contacts here in Cusco. Please don't hesitate to reach out!
