Current Projects

This page is updated seasonally.

If you are not getting a timely response via email or social media, please forgive me. It’s likely that your inquiry simply doesn’t fall into the handful of areas of focus for me right now. I receive a fair amount of requests from folks both locally and afar, but I need to reserve my time for my projects listed below. Thank you for understanding.

Here’s what I’m working on right now, in the winter of 2021/22…

Presenting book to FEMA

After the last few years of widespread wildfires in British Columbia, Washington, Oregon, and California, massive flooding in places like Texas, hurricane tragedies in the Caribbean and Southeast, and of course the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic, the ever-growing response to my Prepared Neighborhoods book continues.

After speaking at the biennial FEMA National Preparedness Symposium, I’m now taking that same message regionally, presenting my book’s unique perspective of looking at preparedness through a lens of love and community-building rather than fear, as well as the innovative partnership with a municipality and a fire district behind my related nonprofit Bainbridge Prepares.

I have deep gratitude for the opportunity to also take care of my amazing clients (capped at five or less at any given time) who are directly bringing benefit to this world…folks like these.

This year I have a new project with my buddy Jason McLennan underway; please see Living Deep for details.

In addition to these new exciting projects, I continue to focus on building resilience into my family’s life, as well as in our community. Right now that specifically looks like us doing loads of harvesting and processing from our permaculture micro-farm. I’m also enjoying both my two teenagers. My wife and I love spending time with these two super-neat human beings, as well as our new rescue German Shepherd.
