Presently he works as an Interpretive Naturalist with the Aquarium of the Bay and contributes to community gardening and permaculture education efforts in San Francisco.

Experiential Education

We know learning has happened when we have an experience and our behavior changes as a result. Learning happens when we recognize an experience as meaningful and significant. Meaningful and significant experiences can happen in a classroom—but they happen even more powerfully outside the classroom, in the outdoors, connecting with other people, or when we are pursuing our passions.

Permaculture Design

Permaculture is the design modality of creating optimal human systems based on the patterns inherent in natural ecosystems. It is most famously a way of designing gardens so that each element supports, and is supported by, the others—the principles of permaculture design can as easily be applied to strategic planning, teaching, and community development.
