2 ~ What brought you to Ashland & Southern Oregon area? Let us know what’s been inspiring you these days!
I connected with Asha at Pacific Domes many years ago, and as I learned more about Ashland the more I wanted to live there, so now I will be moving to town in November to get my White Tiger Farm established on land near town.
3 ~ What would you love to offer to and share with our community? What do you envision could be a few of the most beneficial things that could happen from actively using this site? Feel free to be outrageous!
As a Vietnam vet, after my military service I focused on finding solutions to end conflict and mindless wars for profiteering corporates and elitist / globalist interests who have raped and pillaged for far too long. I will showcase new tech and materials to provide abundant clean energy, food and water production, as well as eco-friendly materials for construction and fabrication to the Ashland community, and nearby communities. I will also be busy building a natural rubber production capacity for our country that now imports it from Asian sources, it's predicted that we will have a shortfall of 1.5 million tons of natural rubber by 2020. Building an ecological civilization, at least a local model, meshed with Steampunk style.
4 ~ Please describe any projects or businesses you'd like to develop, if any? What is your "JOB" (aka "Joy of Being")? What especially delights you?
Being able to show people that we can co-create the means to provide clean energy, food and water, as well as affordable, eco-friendly housing for all people, in every nation, including our own.

Every autumn, monarch butterflies migrate across the U.S., heading south (and in some cases, west) for the winter. They are one of the few butterfly species that makes such a long migration—it can be up to 3,000 miles, and they often travel in such large groups that they fill the sky with their orange-and-black wings and blanket vegetation when resting. But over the past two decades, their numbers have been steadily declining, to the point that this insect is being considered for the endangered species list. Since 1997, when an estimated 682 million monarchs swooped through the air, the population has dwindled as low as 25 million monarchs in 2014 before rebounding to 150 million in 2016. So when reports of this year’s migration seem to indicate more of these winged wonders than usual, it could be a sign that their populations are continuing to make a comeback.

An urban canopy created with algae has got people talking about the link between technology and environment. According to Gizmag, the bio-digital structure pumps a fluid with microalgae around a transparent shelter, which in turn produces shade, energy in the form of biomass, and an impressive amount of oxygen amounting to the equivalent of four hectares of woodland.
When it comes to photosynthesis, microalgae organisms are ten times more efficient than large trees and grass. Buildings and architectural surfaces are efficient spaces to utilize this technology.
