The best way to describe myself professionally is to say I’m an Applied Environmental Anthropologist. I study the intersection of human socio-culture and the natural world; learning about the relationships humanity has with our planet. I am interested in applying my skills to foster change towards a mutually beneficial (for people and planet) sustainable future. I am passionate about playing my part in helping to create a sustainable society in which we value each other and have reverence for our earth. I am a graduate of Naropa University with a master’s in Environmental Leadership where I received training in environmental justice, deep ecology, living systems theory, and authentic leadership. I served as an Environmental Education and Awareness volunteer in the U.S. Peace Corps for two years in Zambia where I worked with community farmers to create sustainable farming practices. Currently I work as an Urban Farmer in Las Vegas and as a field biologist in the Mojave Desert.
