My road in life took a while to figure out.
I spent a year at community college but realized that style of learning didn’t really work for me.
After accepting that it was okay to try a different route, I went to Brazil to be with family and explore different relationships we can have with the earth.
I ended up at a small community in Brazil that was practicing permaculture, agroforestry, and natural building.
I eventually made my way to the Omega Institute in upstate New York while following my interest in holistic healing—the experience confirmed my desire to pursue a more alternative lifestyle.
I spent a summer at a farm in upstate New York, where I learned more about herbalism, food growing, and natural building.
Through these experiences, I learned that I especially enjoyed physically building things.
I found a work-trade in Costa Rica building A-frame tiny homes and learning more about traditional carpentry.
I finally made my way to Community Rebuilds, an organization using affordable housing to address the housing crisis in Moab, Utah, where I’m refining my skills and learning about natural building.
