I was born in Prague, left for NY at the age of 20, after two years moved to Key West, Florida, after year and a half moved to Costa Rica
where I acquired a farm to plant an agricultural system known as "food forest" or permaculture. Together with my wife Hannah and other two partners we opened up an artisan shop called La Gavilana Herbs & Art to create and to sell Hannah's art creations, my fermented hot sauces, our forest-adventure tours and to do property management/landscaping.
I come from a musician background and actively play accordion.
I like Natural Philosophy literature and the practice of conscious integration into the world through composting, plant growing, food fermenting, cooking and creating social ties.
The tour to Rancho Maximo Rustic B&B is operated from our shop in El Castillo where it starts. Maximo is a brother to a man with whose family I lived for 7 years, he is my uncle you could say.
I have several life motto I combine to "keep it together" though they at first may not look like to be of the same category:
"It is not your life it is Life itself."
"It is what it is, it is because it is."
"It is what you make it. Do what you can, with what you got, with where you are , with whom you are."
"Never criticize never find fault, never blame."
