Why I Do This Work

"I have a strong connection to place and am drawn to environmental storytelling because of my passion for protecting and preserving our planet. I strive to create a relationship between information and emotion, and create narratives that inspire empathy, connection, and ultimately, action. I want to raise awareness about pressing environmental challenges our communities face and empower people to create positive change."
