About Me

Raised on a farm, served in the U.S. Air Force (aircraft mechanic), college education, worked as Civil/Agricultural Engineer, mentor with Engineers Without Borders, presently semi-retired, part time mechanic and small sheep farmer.
My passion is soil conservation, biological/organic farming, and the regeneration of Mother Earth.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I like to travel and experience a place with the people that live there.


Woodworking, electrician, welding, creating functional tools and art, sheep, wool, and fiber arts.
Permaculture, soil regeneration, and spiritual regeneration.
Horses and carriage driving.
