A Licensed Massage Therapist for 10 years, I have been richly fulfilled helping clients resolve their pain, learn to relax & become happier, healthier, more effective people. But I didnt' get financially rich doing massage, and as I near my retirement years with no savings or roof over my head (mostly due to car accidents/injuries) my resourcefulness has kicked into high gear while my artistic pursuits are calling me in a profound way. I'm excited to live my remaining years serving in whatever capacity I am able, and perhaps sculpting homes is in my future!!!
Design really lights a fire in my furnace!!! I got so excited at the prospect of building super-adobe structures, cob structures and researching earth-home building that an entire sustainable plan jumped inside my vision in a moment while looking at a piece of property.
Self-sustainability became very important to the residents of Maui when I lived there 13 years as food, supplies, pretty much everything was shipped in. Farming became increasingly important as the price of fuel skyrocketed and I was lucky to learn from a permaculture group and a master gardener who previously fed 100 people daily in a commune in Canada.
My background includes publishing the American Institute of Architects Handbook of Professional Practice, and many other books on building homes, hospitals and particular styles. My art-inspired background at the Smithsonian Institution, years in production and film marketing, national promotions for Disney/ABC, and my addiction to reno shows on HGTV, I have enough smarts to know to bring in experts to build green homes and produce materials on how to pass that knowledge/info on to others.
I've always known, since the time I was a small child, that I would have a major impact on humankind. Maybe this is it, I don't know until it happens. Perhaps you may help me do it.
Thank you for your consideration!
