My past life as a biologist informs my current life as a writer and photographer. I strive to witness the natural world in a way that honors its intrinsic value without translation or hyperbole. As a biologist, I found my impact and reach were limited. Writing from a place of knowledge about the landscape and our impact upon it has opened many conversations that were unexpected and fruitful. As a photographer of wild places and intimate natural patterns, I hope to create meaningful dialogue with a wider audience.
