  • Description


    My Family and I are converting our farm into a food forest. Located in a small village in Chhattisghar. We want to successfully start organic food production and self sustainable lifestyle. My mom Dr.Susan is an accomplished speaker and medical & environmental activist. She specializes in studies of the human behavior and is known for her pioneering work in the field of HIV/AIDS. She later created environmental projects and started educating her listeners about reverse migration, waste management and healthy lifestyle.
    I am a singer/songwriter and audio engineer who has left the big city life to come live on my family farm for a healthier and happier lifestyle. I love to Jam on my guitar and sing so if you are a fellow musician then you are most welcome to jam along.

    Currently my super cool grandma (age 86), my mom (age 58) and I (age 32) are living on the farm along with another family of 5 who are also here to learn and about organic farming and contribute to a self sustainable lifestyle.
