“I am a permaculturally-informed and biased socio-political activist-journalist and future-roots hiphop producer currently living in Lawrence, Kansas with my sweet little family. Deeply committed to local food and farms, I’m interested in rounding out my facility with the whole of the permaculture design flower, from the largely invisible social software of community currency, land-tenure and radical democracy to the visible physical structures of renewable energy and land-based building practices.
Born and raised in Los Angeles, I now live in the American heartlands, full of golden fields of wheat. My goal with straw-building is to learn, practice and share robust and beautiful solutions to providing human communities with living and working spaces that are indigenously effective and ingenuously situated to our unique bio-regions. I appreciate greatly the opportunity to learn, someday soon, from Alex and Gabriella, the art and craft of strawbale building.”
