I am a graphic designer, multimedia storyteller and digital communications strategist. I am also a trained environmental scientist. I love crafting creative digital media and developing digital engagement strategies for social and ecological causes and organizations. I also have a nerdy fascination measuring the results of these campaigns through analytics, in order to better understand how we can bring more people together in support of the greater good.
I have a MSc in Environmental Science form University of Oregon and a MFA in Digital Arts & New Media from University of California, Santa Cruz. I am currently a communications manager, visual designer and research director for the art-science nonprofit, The Center for the Study of the Force Majeure. I have a passion for the wild places, wild creatures, great visual design, great storytelling, proper paper airplane construction and freshly ground peanut butter.
