I am a Humanitarian worker engaged in water and sanitation projects around the world with various NGO's. During my time off between missions, i live in this old farmhouse in rural Dordogne. I am engaged in finding ways to live alternatively while opening up to the greater public to allow these changes to take place.

I am also part of various cultural groups such as a occitan choire and a prehistoric study group.
