Being ever curious of the true nature of reality and purpose of my life I started studying spirituality,religion,
metaphysics,mysticism,sacred geometry,ancient history,shamanism,
energy and much more at a young age. It wasn’t long before I realized LOVE and consciousness are the driving forces of the Universe and to live in the moment and from the heart was how I should proceed. It became very apparent that the way society functioned was inherently broken and becoming worse everyday.
With a deep love of nature and desire to get back to my roots and break free of the constraints of modern society I decided to take a leap of faith and move to Costa Rica in Dec. 2013. Wanting to pursue my dreams and true passions of nature, permaculture, natural building and conscious/holistic living I felt Costa Rica was the right choice.
Having been in construction for the past 12 years at the time I saw how wasteful, toxic and unsustainable conventional construction methods were and knew there was a better way. Already having taken a few cob and earthen plaster courses in Florida I was eager to learn more and found an opportunity after my Permaculture Design Course in Feb. 2014 to attend a week long course on bamboo, cob and adobe from a Tico Master Builder. Since that time I have been on the build crew at Envision the last 3 festivals working with some bamboo masters expanding my knowledge and skills with bamboo and hardwoods. I also attended a 2 week earthen building course at Rancho Mastatal in 2015 further growing my knowledge of cob, adobe, plasters, lime, natural pigments and paints and learned tadelakt, an amazing waterproof limestone plaster technique from Morocco.
