I have been a teacher of ancient living skills for the past 30+ years and am currently in the process of writing up a myriad of articles & handbooks on a variety topics, such as instructions for making a Knotted Net Water Bottle Bag, instructions for Cardweaving Belts, a handbook on Cordage Fiber Plants, a handbook on Stringmaking, articles on local Northern California Wild Foods and much more. 

My book Buckskin: The Ancient Art of Braintanning (co-authored with Steven Edholm) is also currently in the process of being reprinted*.
*The printer of the previous edition destroyed the printing flats without our permission, which means that the entire thing needs to be re-output as a digital file before it can be re-produced in any fashion. I need to dedicate more time to getting this transformation finished so that it can be re-printed, both as a physical paper book but also as a digital download.  

Another project in the works is a memoir of my experiences over the past 30 years of exploring, practicing and teaching paleotechnologies.

Since I am still in the process of recovering both physically and financially from a severe health crisis several years ago, I am currently just covering my monthly bills doing as much of my regular work as my health will allow.  Writing is feeling like a really good way to expand how and what I teach and being able to generate a small amount of income while I am writing would be of tremendous help.

If I can generate some financial support, it is my hope to be making regular articles and/or drafts of my writings available to my Patrons.  As I get my projects complete, I am happy to send them copies in digital and printed format to those who have helped support me in creating them.  
In addition, I can also offer discounts on those publications that are already printed as well as other publications that are sold on my online catalog.  See Tier Descriptions for details.

Thanks very much for taking the time to consider supporting my projects and looking forward to working with you much more in the near future!
