I am a cartographer, bureaucrat, gardener, ecologist, organizer, and activist, working in the Puget Sound restoration industry. I am cultivating mobile bio-cultural restoration field stations, a regional natural resource governance wiki and original works in bioregional cartography in addition to working for pay on restoration funding, ecosystem service quantification and providing technical assistance to local, tribal, state and federal restoration partners. Before that I worked in landscape construction and agroforestry.
I’m a Canadian prairie farm kid turned grocer turned regen ag accelerator. I owned a seasonal grocery store whose focus was on local, in season regenerative and organic foods.
I kickstarted the savory institute hub in Manitoba and then spent the last 3.5 years living in New Zealand working with a start up who was seeking to “make regenerative action valuable”
I’m a regen ag enthusiast and am interested in how bioregional economies (social capital, financial capital, knowledge etc) can bring abundance.
I like being outside, walking in forests, swimming in rivers, gardening, food, people, music, and doing the doing.
