Welcome to the new I'm still working on this, but thanks for visiting. Please do return soon. Here's a brief description of some of the websites I have created and maintain. - This website is based on my years in the salvage and recycling businesses. I started off in scrap metal, moved into deconstruction for used lumber and building materials and ended up doing electronic, telecommunication and computer salvage and recycling where I learned to recover gold and other materials and sold reusable items for alternative energy systems. - Since moving to a few acres of land, I've been able to begin implementing all those great dreams I've had over the years about creating my own self-sufficient life. This website provides resources that I have found useful and chronicles my footsteps down this new path. - In July of 2007 I developed this website for the Blue Creek - Ah Pah Traditional Yurok Village. I've worked with Willard Carlson Jr. (headman) build the village to help rehabilitate and heal the river, land, salmon, Yurok culture, forests, ecosystems, habitat and the people. I also host and maintain the website and do digital photography, videography, GIS cartography, grant writing and promotional work for the village, as well as help with construction and organizational tasks. - My son, Aran, and I developed this website in 1996. It is devoted to GIS (geographical information system). My mission in this work is to provide the information, tools, resources and expertise to enhance personal growth and knowledge and empower you in your efforts towards improving environmental and social conditions. Over the years the website has become quite popular and serves many thousands of visitors each day. - I developed Learn2Map in 2002 as a way of helping people learn to create their own digital maps. The tutorial is free, updated frequently, includes many free resources and can also make use of most all the free GIS maps available at - In 2004 Ernie Albers and I built our first scale model Yurok Redwood Plank House for Eureka's Clarke Museum. It is a large 1/6th scale model and is on permanent display in the museum's Nellis Hall. Since then, we have built several museum quality scale model plank houses of various sizes. Our most recent was one for the Blue Creek - Ah Pah Traditional Yurok Village and one for the Indian Education Program in Brookings, Oregon. - This website was my first North Coast oriented project. Main features include high resolution downloadable maps of aboriginal Yurok territory as well as the GIS layers required to create the maps and access to the free Learn2Map GIS Tutorial. The tutorial also includes access to many more free map layers plus a free GIS program.

I've also developed many websites and projects related to toxic chemicals and environmental justice. In 1996 I created the first U.S. based interactive toxic maps on the internet, the Santa Cruz Toxic Release Inventory. This simple website led to our family being hired to develop nation-wide interactive toxic maps for Environmental Defense's Chemical Scorecard.

If interested, you can check out some of my academic work -- sorry, it's sorely in the need of updating.

If you browse my websites, you'll find that my interests are varied -- to say the least. They reflect, in part, past and/or present occupations, involvements and . Over the years I've been a machinist, factory worker, and teacher. I've worked for my self in general and electronic salvage, longhaul trucking, woodworking, recycling, GIS mapping, scale modelling, computer programming and more. I'd love to hear from you if you have similar interests.

If you have a need for website development, hosting and maintenance; digital videography and editing; digital photography; GIS mapping and cartography; museum quality scale models; or book editing and promotion, please contact me.

Thanks so much for visiting,
