craftsmanship AT HOME AND ABROAD
From the high north to lowland tropics, inner-city lots to rural and broad-acre farms, I embrace innovative approaches to re-establishing watersheds, ecosystems, productive landscapes and enterprises around the world.
Be it helping farmers in Cuba increase their annual profits, creating luxurious poolside sanctuaries in suburban Okanagan Valley, or empowering East African schools, I am privileged to help turn dreams into reality.
