Practicing drylands Permaculture in New Mexico since 1995, I worked with Guerilla Gardeners planting food in medians and alleyways throughout Albuquerque's Student Ghetto, and with Rio Abajo Garden Alliance to teach at risk populations to build their own straw bale compost piles to help them grow their own food.
From 1999 to 2003 I managed a 750 tree organic fruit orchard and equine rescue in San Juan, New Mexico, and then toured as a professional musician in a VW van converted to run on waste vegetable oil until 2010.
In 2011 I received my Bachelor of University Studies degree with foci in Cinematic Arts and Tibetan Buddhism from the University of New Mexico, and in 2012 I entered the Masters of Environmental Studies program at The Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington.
There, I shot and edited a documentary about the nation's first public funded agroforestry project The Beacon Hill Food Forest in Seattle.
In 2013 I received my PDC from Kelda Lorax in the same farmhouse where Bill Mollison taught one of the first PDCs in the US.
I have worked for the last 2 years on the staff of the Northwest Permaculture Convergence, and in 2013 was the Event Coordinator.
Currently, I am working on my masters thesis assessing the multicultural effectiveness of a climate change discussion course from the Northwest Earth Institute in Portland, OR.
