About Me

Location on map is not correct: we are between Ainazi and Salacgriva on the bank of the Salaca river.


collecting wisdom through experiance


energy birthed me at the heart of the gulf stream where the tampa bay explodes in thunderstorms and warm currents. then the currents took me east to the other white land of europe to learn on the road from masters and strangers for some years now. the wondering ramblings turned into an apprenticeship of the natural cycles and trust in fate. Then nature spoke her words of wisdom and the rhythm rhymed with handcrafts and blossoming buds.
still learning and hope to arrive at a stage of harmony with all of frequencies around.

i miss the ocean when i go to sleep.
