About Me

PHILOSOPHY

If there is a need, and you can help...then help. If there is a void, and you can fill it...then fill it. If there is pain, and you can ease it...then ease it. If there is something in this world that needs love...then LOVE IT!

CURRENT MISSION

To help enlighten others about the need to lead a more sustainable lifestyle, with healthy, regenerative principles at the forefront.

To be less dependent and consumer-minded....rather, more productive and self-sufficient.

To help introduce others to the natural world, so they can better understand the natural systems around us, and how to best tap into them, so that we can have a more positive impact on this world.

Free yourself from your puppet master!!

ABOUT ME

I run an Outdoor Education and Adventure company based out of Yosemite National park. I also teach a number of workshops in the field of practical skills. Anything from Wilderness Survival to Permaculture and Sustainable Ag.

"You're not your Facebook status. (Or your couch surfing profile) You're not how many friends you have. You're not the smartphone you own. You're not the apps of your phone. You're not your f-ing iPad. You're the all-planking, e-consuming crap of the world." -Fightclub Remix

With that said, since all you know about me is w/e you gather from what I say in this Couch Surfing profile, (and that could be anything) The only real way to get to know me is to meet me! =)

"We are travelers on a cosmic journey, stardust, swirling and dancing in the eddies and whirlpools of infinity. Life is eternal. We have stopped for a moment to encounter each other, to meet, to love, to share. This is a precious moment. It is a little parenthesis in eternity." Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist

"One's destination is never a place, but rather a new way of looking at things."-Henry Miller

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Helped a philanthropic project in Rurrenabaque, Bolivia, which is located in the Bolivian Amazon basin. Immediately followed by flying over the Andes and hiking the Inca trail from Oyentaytambo to Macchu Picchu.

Seeing the difference between the lush snow-fed jungles that are recharged by the Andes snowpack and the Amazonic watershed....to the arid Bolivian and Peruvian highlands, was quite a sight to see from the air. Truly amazing to see how the natural system in this world work and interact together.

Teach, Learn, Share
