I recognize beauty and the pursuit of pleasure to be powerful means with which to educate, engage and encourage a deeper understanding of how we create and consume in the world. 

Over these next months, I seek to share a compendium of tools and tactics that explore the delicious, the beautiful and the regenerative.

The compendium will take form as an interactive collection of mantras, musings, terms and principles with which we can hope to incite a new conversation about how to build and sustain community through practice.

My hope is that this compendium can be utilized by the creative community (farmers, healers, storytellers, ceramicists and chefs alike) to continue to grow, build and create experiences on earth that are both purposeful and poetic…
