Kanu has served the Govinda Valley community for the most of the last decade. He likes to joke that he speaks French Spanglish, or that he actually knows three languages: bad French, bad Spanish and bad English. As Govinda Valley's maintenance manager, he is very conscious of energy use and minimising waste. Kanu is truly a man of many skills and a genius of upcycling - he can build a shed or garage without paying anything for it!
Kanu is a very dedicated practitioner of the process of Bhakti Yoga, every morning he is up very early doing his mantra meditation and giving talks on the philosophy of devotional service.
