Projects & Creating Beautiful Memories

Lonesome Traveler Band

My band, Lonesome Traveler, is an instrumental trio of dessert rock and heavy ensembles. With Lauren Katherine Newman (LKN) on drums and Dave Bass on the low end and myself on lead guitar; we are an experience. I create the projected imagery montage of Oregon’s agricultural landscapes that streams during our set and is essentially our 4th member. Come check us out!

Ceramics by Tellus Fabulas

Mychelle Moritz of Tellus Fabulas Ceramics has lovingly crafted each plate and small ware for the dinner table this season. Her craft is inspired by each dinner and uses the farm for her inspiration.


After receiving my sommelier certification from the Court of Masters, I have delved deeper into honing my knowledge of wine, pairing, and viticulture. It is my latest passion and I am always finding new avenues of collaboration and new winemakers to nerd out on.

Japan & Wales

For the past three years I have traveled to Japan and Wales to teach and create farm style dinners and inspire a new generation of young farmers for both countries agricultural industries. I am traveling back to Wales in the fall to teach a whole hog butchery class and to present CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) farm models to southern Wales.

Able Experimental Pop-Up

Able Experimental is a pop-up where I will be serving comfort farm food with off the beaten path drinks. Able Experimental pop up is catering to service industry workers, food & farm nerds, soil geeks, etc., giving them/us a great place to go on nights off or after a shift. Honest, fun, no ego….well maybe a little. It is every Saturday night @ Courier Coffee. 7pm til late. Starting 10/12/19.
