When others see a place, I listen for its stories.                                                                             When others see plants and trees, I see life in motion.                                                              I engage communities one voice at a time.

I work with land trusts, conservancies, parks and open spaces, museums, organized groups, schools and the public to inspire active participation in the world outside and build meaningful connections between your people, places and wildlife, so all things can thrive.
