In February 2011, Brian Blum quit his Corporate job as a Product Marketing Engineer in the pursuit of being truly alive. Since this time he has explored Permaculture, learned how to grow food on land and through aquaponics, and pursued a deeper connection to natural systems and to ourselves. Brian loves rock climbing, yoga, Acro-Yoga, slacklining, juggling, poi, and the combination of any and all of these things. Brian presently teaches yoga and volunteers with several organizations in San Diego, CA. In 2013 Brian will be traveling on a way ticket to Central and South America.
