Jay C. White Cloud

I am a Timber Wright with a specialization in indigenous vernacular folk architecture of the Americas, the Middle East, and Asia. My focus is in the "traditional folk arts" of timber, stone, earth and textile architecture, with a strong focus on traditional timber framing modalities. I also have a strong passion for Historical Conservation, Restoration and Reconstruction with a focused ethos of "like for like" in means, methods and materials.

I have taught Guild Arts and Crafts. I have held professional certifications and backgrounds in Rock Climbing, Wilderness Education, Indigenous Life Skills, and Wilderness Medicine. I am an Inactive U. S. Marine. I have held certifications in Safe Crisis Management, Leadership Development, and Team Building, Self Defense for Women, and Situational Awareness and Security. I have worked as a Park Naturalist, Zookeeper, and Animal Husbandry/Vet Tech.

I was the Tree Warden of my town in Thetford, Vermont and have a long history in the Arborist, logging and lumber milling trade. I own and operate Tosa Tomo Designs, subcontracting and consulting to several Architects and Design Build Firms. I also subcontract in Wilderness Guiding, Natural and Traditional Building Workshops, Indigenous Life Skills, Leadership Development, Experiential Therapy, and Personal Security/Self Defense.
