Kasaba builds decentralized and regenerative living villages where people stay a few days, a few months, or a few years. We have a co-ownership model that enables people to stay part of the year and earn passive income when they aren’t there.
Our mission is to build remote work and live villages where people thrive.
You can enjoy organic gardens, fire pits, and communal spaces.
Join our collaborative ownership model that gives you flexibility, stakeholdership and profit-sharing
Our focus is on wellness and learning, and we plan to bring groups for team-building retreats, weekend workshops, and hand-on permaculture activities to grow food on the site.
The villages will be a blend of tiny homes, cabins, and glamping units. We also plan to have spaces for van life explorers.
The first Kasaba location is in Mendocino County, 2.5 hours north of San Francisco. We are also talking with partners in several other states in the USA, Portugal, New Zealand, and Australia.
Revenue comes from accommodation rentals, events, and catering. The business started in mid-2019, and we have raised investment capital to start our first location.
I wrote a best-selling guidebook on national parks in Australia and later produced a documentary that was featured at Sundance and won the Chicago International Film Festival’s Gold Hugo award. For most of my career I’ve worked as an entrepreneur and consultant working at the intersection of media, technology, and community. I am a curious and creative producer and entrepreneur obsessed with the near-future and how people and culture respond and adapt to greet it.
My adventurous life includes a gap year backpacking around the world, then traveling around Australia to write a book, followed by producing short documentaries at music festivals and events around Australia, Poland and Germany. I’ve spoken at conferences in cities including Seoul, New York, Austin, Chicago, San Francisco, Sydney and Melbourne. I was a guest of the European Council and the CeDem Conference in Austria for the civic technology app I developed and sold to over 80 governments and non-profits in Australia, Vietnam and Canada.
One of my most treasured memories are from the many years I co-created a 9-day camping trip with my community (of over 150 people) when we gathered by various rivers and swimming holes near Melbourne, Australia. It was like our own mini-Burning Man. It was filled with heart-opening expressions of love for each other in sublime surroundings. These experiences led me to create Kasaba. For me, it’s a way to share my passion for being in nature, giving us a chance to be still and reconnect with the land, each other, and ourselves.
I’m working on multi-stakeholder coops with sociocracy at it’s heart.
My dream with Kasaba is to create a place that helps us see better ways of living that are low-impact, aligned with our values and lead to joy and happiness.
