As a child, I fell in love with the great outdoors and great stories. So naturally, I grew up to be a writer and environmentalist.
My undergraduate degree, in Humanities, is from Stanford University. I've also earned a Masters in English literature from Humboldt State, where I briefly taught composition. I've worked as staff writer for The Nature Conservancy, developed publicity and fundraising materials for a variety of nonprofits, and helped establish two land trusts.
My publications include articles, poetry and translations. I've completed a TV pilot and two screenplays, with more in the works. They include comedy, drama and fantasy.
