Raised on the central coast of CA, I was privileged to grow up surrounded by natural beauty and open space. A five month trek on the Pacific Crest Trail and a comparable journey in New Zealand deepened my appreciation for wild spaces. My cumulative year spent traveling on foot exposed me to the elegance of a life boiled down to its core components. Upon returning from my walking, I sought to apply the minimalist principles of backpacking to my everyday life, and so began my 6 year quest to create a hand built dwelling of the highest quality that my ability would allow. Finally complete, my 250 square foot home on wheels rests in San Luis Obispo as I seek to expand my skill with wood and deepen my relationship with the trees from which it comes.
