Communion with nature informs everything I do. Though intrinsically drawn to unadulterated wilderness, I practice appreciation of the breathing world intertwined in the human built environment with a sense of urgency. Maintaining bodily awareness of the destruction and suffering inflicted by humanity as well as the resilience and wisdom of other lifeforms around us is the foundation for change.
Foraging is a cornerstone of my life. I collect edible & medicinal plants and mushrooms throughout the year, and educate myself and others about nature's bounty in our own backyards. Whether leading nature walks or posting on my Instagram feed, I love sharing what I know and inspiring more people to go outside, pay attention, and be amazed.
