Treesong, Director

Treesong has been involved at Gaia House in various roles since February 1997. He came to Carbondale as an undergraduate student at SIU and earned his Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy in 2000. After graduating from SIU, he decided to stay in Carbondale due in large part to his involvement here at Gaia House (then known as the Interfaith Center). He was a Program Assistant during the 2000-2001 school year and continued to be involved on a volunteer basis thereafter. In 2011, he returned to the Center as the Interim Program Director and eventually became the Director in August of 2012.

Treesong is also an author, teacher, poet, talk radio host, and ordained minister. In addition to being the Director of Gaia House, he currently serves as Secretary of the Carbondale Interfaith Council.
