My name is Anthony and I'm an avid traveller and lover of life. I am from Michigan and have lived in New York City, Detroit and South Africa. I have a variety of skills as I've spent my life as a teacher, gardener, fish monger, handyman and cook. I love nothing more than being connected with the earth and sharing life with positive people. I have a great interest in living a sustainable lifestyle and learning more about Permaculture.
