About Me


to be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy not rich, to study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly


I grew up in some of the last woods of New Jersey and ran with them. Its been a blessing and I have worked with sustainable building and agriculture since I was 17 years old. Studied Anthropology of Economics and Development at Rutgers University and ran with that too. Recently I've worked for Kleiwerks International, a natural building NGO, and helped develop their permaculture site in Asheville, North Carolina. I really enjoy walking aimlessly into the woods, riddling through abandoned structures, eating and cooking amazing foods especially with those who raised them, drinking and making beer, building just about anything, laughing hysterically, watching cartoons, asking questions, and meeting new people who are in the mood to meet me.
