Ray Cirino is an inventor/permaculturist/artist.
Ray fulfills his dream of making the world ecologically sustainable while enjoying each moment doing so. In 2012 he was awarded with the City of Los Angeles Certificate of Commendation for his creative contributions and community organizations.
His insatiable appetite to build things has prompted him to develop multiple skills. Especially interested in the patterns of nature and architecture, he learned before completing an architectural degree at Miami-Dade Architecture school.
He began a custom furniture business in Sunnyvale California and went on to earn his diploma from the North American School of Natural building in 2002. After twenty years of fine woodworking, he moved to Los Angeles to work as an industrial designer, welder and artist, opening a new world of discovery as an artist inventor. Ray founded two Water Woman festivals based on permaculture techniques and sustainable art.
In 2002, he began studies in permaculture and continues as a top innovator in this movement focused on sustainable energy, agriculture, water, and shelter systems. After adding permaculture to his skill set, he now has the ability to turn a problem into the solution.
Today Ray teaches young people proven sustainable skills and methods. A prime mover and shaker in a world that has become less sustainable, he promotes the abundances nature offers.
Ray Cirino celebrates and teaches the opportunities that give birth to Ecological, Psychological, and Spiritual Sustainability at a time when we face great challenges as a species.
