building workshops, classes, consulting, and
apprenticeships. Contact us to learn more.

I'm a native Californian with a
love of critters, fire, and mud. I've been a
natural builder for some time, have taught with Cob Cottage Co. and around California
for over a decade. For me, exploring the
possibilities and pushing the boundries is where
it's at. While Natural Building is ancient, for
our culture it's new, there's still a lot of room
for discovery and experimentation.
Over the years,
my focus has shifted towards the project of building a regenerative technology school. Natural Building is one aspect of a larger structure, a collection of tools for establishing regenerative cultures.
