Born 1971, Twin Falls, Idaho. From age 16, I searched for the cause of joy. I independently studied philosophy, health, and design. I tested my findings while traveling America, living outside or in small groups, doing odd jobs, playing music, and building alternative shelter.
In 2008, my quest culminated in the darkness conjecture, a concept of the restful use of darkness in support of the self-healing psyche. Since then, I have been:
- proving the concept
- designing and building darkrooms and supporting retreats in Guatemala, Sweden, Norway, Spain, and Czech Republic
- giving lectures and consulting for readers
- refining and documenting my work at darkroomretreat.com
Now I seek a way to fully apply it in a 20-day retreat in order to heal from my own psychophysical illness.
