What areas of sustainability are you interested in (gardening, alternative energy, natural building, etc.)?

All of the above. Most interested in helping myself and my immediate neighborhood rapidly transition and in empowering others to spawn hyper-local transition initiatives throughout Louisville. Also very interested in the social/emotional/psychological elements of transition as it relates to "expanding the choir." Working on getting Louisville's first Earthship started this year.

What kind of Meetups work well for you? (Type or Time)

Casual, hands-on meetups work well. Much more into learning by doing than getting mired in bureaucracy. Enjoy projects that involve "thinking outside the box." And any meetup that involves food is a good meetup. :)

What skills do you have? (Everyone's got skills...) If you have skills you'd be willing to share in a Meetup setting, please contact the Organizer

Some gardening skills - always eager to learn more. Some familiarity with natural building techniques - cob, earthships, etc. Filmmaking, storytelling, artistic skills. Creative problem solving skills. Decent brain for technology.


I'm an environmental documentary filmmaker, actor, and advocate in the process of transitioning. Co-founder/organizer­ of Bluegrass Bioneers Conference and director of YERT: Your Environmental Road Trip (
