I was a freelance writer/publisher who, in 1999 found my personal niche in a lovely Maya village in central Yucatan. I love the abundance of life here, the friendly, laid back community and, since building the lodge, the opportunity to meet fascinating people from around the world--mostly positive, adventurous folks looking for meaningful, non-intrusive ways of interacting with the natural and human community here.
