Overview

I look at the world through the lens of an environmental scientist and a global citizen. My skill set is grounded in my ability to creatively communicate to diverse audiences. I am more likely to ask "how" instead of "why." Highlighting the human connection is where I see myself working, whether it be writing, working in the conservation sector, or assisting companies to achieve their marketing, outreach, and consumer satisfaction goals. I get people, people get me, and together, we can get things done.
