Some of his articles are recorded in the books “Ten Years in Nature School - a Journal” and “Firefly Academy Green Journal”. In 2011, He wrote his own book “Good Parenting is Letting Go” .
In 2000, Starfish joined the “Earth Walker” tutor training course and dedicated his spare time into growing the Gaia Association (commonly known as “GAIA school”). In 2006, he began devoting all his time to building and managing the school.
