Writer/Creator.

Welcome to my portfolio. I solve word problems.

I am a writer and creative director with training in environmental management and in ecology, often exploring the intersection of natural history and the human experience. I embrace elegant design, inspired wordplay, and thoughtful messaging.

I greatly appreciate the interdisciplinary nature of knowledge — science and humanities are merely different lenses to view the same world, each as important as the other. And as we continue to define humanity’s relationship with the planet, we must examine all perspectives, from the statistical to the spiritual.

For example, just ask yourself:  what do you value in Nature, and why?
