I’ve been creating ‘right-brain’ responses to ‘left-brain’ questions since I was thirteen years old, when a long summer road trip through Mexico lit a fire that has never gone out. I express my answers in writing, photography, speaking and activism, endeavoring in each to tell compelling stories in inspiring ways .
I grew up in the American West and dedicated a great deal of creative energy to exploring and explaining the region, collected here as A West That Works.
I have worked on the cutting edge of collaborative conservation, regenerative agriculture, ecological restoration, and climate mitigation, adaptation, and resilience for nearly two decades. As cofounder and Executive Director of the Quivira Coalition, I had the privilege to explain their hopefulness in numerous publications and public speaking events, collected here as Solutions.
My current project is titled This Moment In Time. It aims to explore and chronicle this extraordinary moment in history for future generations through photography, fiction, and nonfiction.
