Originally from Brazil, Bruno has worked with farmers and organizations in Brazil, Europe and North America including Hofgut Rengoldshausen, Hawthorne Valley Farm and Benziger Family Winery. He currently serves as the Director of the Living Soils Project at The Nature Institute in upstate New York.

The Nature Institute, founded in 1998, is a small, independent not-for-profit organization dedicated to the development of new qualitative and holistic approaches to seeing and understanding nature and technology through incisive and thoughtful research studies, publications and educational programs. The Institute serves as a local, national and international forum for research, education and the exchange of ideas about the re-visioning of science and technology in an effort to realign humanity with nature.
