(projects i'm involved in)
I was born in 1982 in Santa Barbara. Went to college at UC Santa Cruz.
My first exposure to PC was browsing the pictures in the Permaculture Designer's Manual and checking out a few Permaculture Activist magazines
During a stint teaching English in Chile, I went to Gaia Ecovilla in Argentina (which I'd heard about in PC Activist) to a 10-day course in Spanish called "Explorando y Discubriendo La Vida Sostentable."
When I moved to Santa Barbara again I ended up taking a PDC with Geoff Lawton and Darren Doherty at Quail Springs in May of 2007. After that I sat in on the second half of another Darren Doherty course there later in the year (October 2007).
Later I participated in the 2008-2009 RDNA program at the Regenerative Design Institute, a program in permaculture and naturalist skills.
In August of 2009, I had the privilege of taking an advanced permaculture course called "Sustainable Aid" from Robyn Francis at Quail Springs.
I currently live in San Francisco and I work as a gardener. I install laundry greywater systems, as well. I love functional landscape design and want to develop my skills in this arena. My longer term goals include designing and running a small farm and nursery business. In the shorter term, I hope to participate in an aid project in the non-industrialized world with my wife Xanat.
