JT’s connection to nature was fully realized as soon as he was old enough to cover himself in dirt. Since then he has found nearly every excuse to deeply immerse himself in the ocean, the garden and the wild lands that he calls his home. JT discovered the potential to make this a lifestyle when he met an old bear in the woods named Tim Corcoran. Since then he has continued his study with Tim, the founder of Headwaters, as well as Tod Haddow, Lynx Vilden and countless others.
JT has spent over six weeks of his life living off of excusively wild foods and loves finding ways of getting wild plants into every aspect of his life.
“JT is one of my favorite nature skills mentors to share time with. He is wonderfully knowledgeable, humble, sweet and an engaging storyteller. His love for the ancestral magic of music and culinary arts come together to always make times with him memorable and delicious. I recommend his highly experiential classes heartily!” — Jon Young, Author of Coyotes Guide and What the Robin Knows
