Primitive skills and outdoor and environmental education has been a part of my life since the mid 70's. I was fortunate enough to attend the Colorado Rocky Mountain School in Colorado, become a NOLS instructor and work for BOSS (Boulder Outdoor Survival School).
My main area of teaching at this point is yurt building and hide tanning but I am a good generalist with never having a knack for knapping.
I am a teacher of group facilitation, leadership and commnication and have done this for much of my life.
With my wife Kirsten and my two sons Kiyota and Tomoki, we host the Winter Count and Sky Earth gatherings. This too is a great privilege.
And if you like the canvas flys you see at our gathings, let me know, I make those too. Shade Cloud.
