(projects i'm following)
Originally from the UK, I left 30 years ago and I've been travelling, living and working in other countries, mainly in the Global South, for the past 20 years. I started out in academia, researching and teaching global environmental change, oceanography and climate change. After fieldwork in the Solomon Islands and Papua New Guinea, I left academia to travel widely and then worked in "rural development" and "international conservation". I spent over 6 years working in Papua New Guinea in local conservation organisations, community environment projects, coral reef conservation and community agriculture.
I left Papua New Guinea in 2010 and, after working with a food justice group in Oakland California, in 2011 I started training in permaculture, mainly at sites around Mexico and Central America. After an IPC gathering in Cuba, I lived there for 2 years and learned more about their food and agriculture systems.
In 2016, I began to focus more on edible landscaping, then spent a year living in the Peruvian Amazon, which all led to me specalising in successional agroforestry/syntropic farming and its application to sustainable livelihoods in the Global South and ecological regeneration.
I work on projects around the world, with a focus on Spain, Portugal and West Africa.
