From 2009 TO 2015 I was the Project Manager and a founding team member for a land stewardship and contract grazing outfit called Star Creek Land Stewards, inc.  

Working with sheep and goats, we developed grazing programs to reduce wildfire hazard by creating or maintaining fuel breaks, to control noxious weeds, improve vegetation and wildlife habitat in the Bay Area of California. Working with Star Creek I was able to delve into my Passions for building soil, working to restore grasslands and managing for desirable biodiversity of landscapes working with livestock as a land management tool.  

The ancient wisdom and art of shepherding with dogs and livestock is also a passion that I am nurturing as I learn to work with my border collie, Rue.
