I am Roger and I especially love river rafting, inventing, dance, and being married to Peggy.

I have been designing and building passive solar custom homes in and around Humboldt County for the past 36 years.


About 18 years ago while working on another cohousing project, I realized that although my design and building experience met the architectural needs of the group, I found myself wanting better group facilitation skills to satisfy an important need within the group for effective communication and decision making. I began looking for ways to learn some of those skills and I acquired extensive training in Challenge Course Facilitation, CoActive Coaching, Nonviolent Communication, Seven Habits 4 Teens and Parenting with Positive Discipline.


For the past 15 years I have had fun facilitating various courses and workshops and as a part time challenge course facilitator and trainer working with groups learning to work together more effectively. Since 2008 I have taught parenting classes through the CR Foster and Kinship Care Program and Eureka City Schools. Most recently Peggy and I hosted a 3 Day workshop on Dynamic Facilitation and are now hosting an ongoing Community of Practice for local facilitators and trainers. See Thriving With Others.org.


As Peggy and I bring the vision of a home and community into reality I am excited to bring all of these experiences into the process.
