Writing ~ Community Engagement ~ Public Programs ~ Training

When others see a place, I listen for its stories.  When others see plants and trees, I watch life in motion. I invite others to be curious and ask questions as the doorway to a better understanding of ourselves and our relationship to the outdoor world.

Link here to preview writing, interpretive & other media projects.

I work with land trusts, conservancies, parks and open spaces, historic sites and museums, organized groups, schools and the public to inspire active participation in the world outside and build meaningful story connections one voice at a time.  Stories to highlight your people, places and wildlife, so all things can thrive.
