From growing up in rural upstate New York near Niagara Falls, I wandered into village India for a Peace Corps assignment, returned to American turmoil in 1968 Detroit, Michigan, ventured down to the Appalachian Mountains to establish a custom building career and a family. I learned enough to seek an Earthwatch study in Tunisia followed by another in France. What was I interested in? Cave dwelling cultures, of course. You get the idea. I am passionate about the world, all of it. I've retired from building unique homes and will spend my time sharing what I find about what is good, vibrant and growing in this world. Explore with us.
