  • Description

    I am a young, positive, energetic guy coming from the corn country of Indiana in the United States. I love people, I love experiencing new cultures, learning, being enriched, widening the constraints of my conditioning, and growing. Adventure and travel is obviously largely appealing and something that I live to do but, while its great just to go about and have a life of fun and excitement, traveling the world, living on the edge, I also have a strong desire to make sure that I am doing it in a sustainable and respectful manner. I have work traded on five different farms, a flower farm in Maui, a family farm raising 300 chickens and a large variety of vegetables in Vermont, an off grid start up in Costa Rica, an off grid permaculture orchard in upstate New York, and a small family coffee, mac nut farm on the Big Island of Hawaii. I have also done a work trade in the desert of Arizona in which I was apart of a cob building natural home project. While in Indiana, I have worked for a nonprofit group called Keep Indianapolis Beautiful inc. working in Urban forestry with local high school kids and on an nonprofit urban farm for the last five years. I have a deep care for the land and a passion to live as simply and mindfully as possible, minimizing my environmental impact. I love to get my hands dirty, I love to sweat, and I love being driven through hard work with a real purpose. I want to live a life of simplicity close to the Earth, learning, growing, loving, and laughing all along the way. I feel very confident that I will make a great addition to any household/farmstead and greatly look forward to getting the chance to learn from you!
