​​Bohemian Reflections

living the want-to life ​​

This has been my home on the web since 2006. I have covered many topics over the years, but mostly my interests have revolved around living a simple, meaningful, sustainable life. I left the corporate world in 2002, and I have never looked back. Today I bill myself as an artist, gardener, and educator. This is my daily mantra:

peace, joy, beauty

What I Do

I use​ art and gardening to teach individuals and groups how to bring more peace, joy, and beauty into their lives. Topics include conflict management, communication, spiritual disciplines, life curation, urban farming, and permaculture. I help people live a life they want to live and a life they want to share with others.

My purpose is to walk with you on a journey of self-discovery and spiritual renewal.
