My last full time job was in paper mills in Utah,Arizona and Alabama. I was a millwright, which translates to jack of all trades .
Also been gardening since I was a young boy and eventually owned a farm for eighteen years. Had all sorts of animals but later on mostly chickens and ducks and geese and turkeys. Grew enough food to feed many families and sold vegetables at the farmers market and also directly from my farm .
After a couple of car accidents I had to take a break and get healthy which is how yoga found me and changed my life direction. I became a yoga teacher in 2016 and went to India in 2019 to get a 200 hour Yoga teacher training certification. I have been teaching in two studio’s and a gym and before covid had planned on teaching via Workaway in Thailand Indonesia and Malaysia. Instead I have had opportunities to teach at a jungle hostel in Costa Rica and a resort in Mexico.
