It’s not about decorating. It’s not a ‘how to.’ Habicurious is about the shifting, complex relationship people have with where they live. Me included.
One of our most basic human needs is that we all need a place to live. An address defines us on many levels and influences our relationship to others and the communities around us.
Our housing shapes us and mirrors where we’ve come from, where we are, and our hopes and dreams for the future. Sometimes we control our choices and sometimes living conditions are thrust upon us by age, illness, economic challenges, personal history, immigration, life milestones or larger societal shifts.
As a newly-minted construction carpenter/builder with a consulting and community development background, I’m interested in the space where the bricks and mortar components intersect with the human.
I look forward to connecting with many bright and engaged individuals, companies and other organizations who are working on a variety of the shelter or community-related puzzle pieces, or are seeing innovative projects and ideas due to their innate curiosity with the world around them. I welcome your thoughts and invitations for potential collaboration.
