Vision

Harmonic Mycology is unfolding a long-term and multi-faceted vision for enhancing the health and vitality of humyn and ecological systems in the 21st Century. The first phase of our work is the development and sale of top-quality medicinal mushroom products. These products are designed to fostering greater physical, psychological and spiritual health as we move through challenging and uncertain times. The second phase is intended to expand humyn engagement with fungi through the teaching of workshops and courses on medicinal mushrooms, fungal ecology and cultivation. Finally, Harmonic Mycology will engage more deeply in mycoremediation, reforestation and filtration, bringing healing to ecosystems and landscapes through the application of mycelial technologies. Further research and development will be devoted to bleeding edge advancements in humyn-fungal relations.

Amateur mycologist, adventurous mycophile, citizen-scientist, martial artist and entrepreneur

I am the co-founder and creator of Harmonic Mycology. The beginning of my journey was mainly dedicated to the development of Harmonic Mycology as a business. I have since turned my focus to learning and developing different cultivation techniques necessary to grow a variety of functional and medicinal fungi for the production of health products and with hopes to educate, inspire and empower people in the extended community to do the same as a way to create decentralised, collaborative socio-economic networks, improve food security and to gain wider access to the Fungi that can feed us and heal us.

I am deeply driven by my curiosity for the discovery and development of mycelial-technologies and the advancement of societal knowledge and the use of Fungi as food, medicine, textiles, building materials and bio-technologies. I believe through establishing a deeper relationship with the Fungi and improving methods for communication we are able to develop creative, restorative and sustainable solutions to modern day health problems, whether it be humyn, societal or environmental.

I'm on a mission to capture as many novel strains as I can to establish and maintain a culture library with the intention to preserve and protect our global myco-diversity and combat potential issues related to large-scale overharvest and exploitation of our rare Fungi for the sake of short-term capital gain.

My vision for the coming years is to establish a team of like-minded and skilled individuals who share the vision of building a multi-species, collaborative and co-operative future - mimicking the true nature of the Fungi and the selfless role they play in all living systems in our universe.
