I have always been fascinated with the natural world, its patterns, constant change, and the ecological cycles forever keeping a fragile balance. It was from this fascination, and my obsession with simple machines, puzzles, and problem solving, that Greywater Cascadia was born. In 2005 I started working with a “Jack of all Trades” restoring houses in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina. It was there I first gained experience in drainage and waste plumbing. In 2007 I moved to Vermont where I studied Sustainable Building and Design at Yestermorrow Design/ Build School. By 2010 I had made my way back home to the west coast, where I completed a Greywater installers Certification course through Greywater Action. I have since installed numerous systems, provided consultation on a variety of projects, and taught several workshops.
I can provide design consultation and guidance in the states of Oregon and Washington. I also am available, and enjoy, teaching classes and leading workshops.
