-Walt Whitman

Does fly fishing, hiking, perhaps yoga and/or organic meals figure into your getaway or retreat?

Bruce's Story

Whether owning his own handyman/landscape business where he taught others how to DIY (do it yourself) and where he hand-crafted landscapes using locally harvested materials and Permaculture concepts, or as an early pioneer in an eco-tour business, then as a professional caretaker and property manager, Bruce has always taken care of place; landscapes and their properties—and always with the esthetic of an artist who has an eye for detail, and the genetic imperative to create beauty. When he later turned this aesthetic to Transmedia storytelling, his multi-media stories remained true to his bond with nature; preservation of the natural world, organic food, farming, and the wonders of nature.

Bruce was raised in rural Missouri in a “do-it-yourself” family; the right combination of terrain and fertile soil that germinated the seeds of the Renaissance man he continues to become. As a child if Bruce wasn’t in his father’s workshop fixing a family car, repairing a washing machine or studying a manual on How To ____(fill in the blank), he would doubtless be buried in a National Geographic magazine, or exploring the geography of the family’s forty + acre property with his artist mother whose prolific sketching, painting, and photography, seamlessly wove themselves into the fabric of Bruce’s own way of being. It is this mixture of an undaunted curiosity, love of self-sufficiency, affinity with nature, and the genetic inheritance of an artist, that connect Bruce’s passions and interests with his life, and work.

After high school Bruce entered the Air Force where he trained as an Armaments Specialist with a top security clearance to load Nuclear weapons on F-4 fighter jets, and B-52 bombers; an experience that proved enlightening and ushered in a knowledge that his path would be that of the peaceful warrior. When later his artistic urges merged with Internet technologies, he entered and won a scholarship contest to attend film school, and went on to earn a degree in New Media/Transmedia from the prestigious Vancouver Film School. Art, technology, and exploration merged, when he single-handedly set out on a backpack-broadcasting trip, traveling throughout the U.S., India and Columbia, to make a documentary film about humanity living through planetary changes. Today he creates short-form Transmedia stories, hosts a ecological blog while continuing his study and research of sustainability, permaculture, regenerative analog agroforestry, and holistic grazing concepts.
