I am an artist, educator, and science communicator passionate about the role stories play in shaping public perspectives of ecology, natural history, and sustainability. Recently, I’ve done visual communication projects, freelance journalism, and ‘sketching for scientists’ trainings for scientists across the country and entities ranging from Parks Canada, The Nature Conservancy, and Harvard Forest to community-scale initiatives.
