I am a New York City-based environmental journalist, member of the Explorer's Club, and a candidate for a Masters of Science in Sustainability Studies at Columbia University.  

My writing and docu-videos have appeared in The Atlantic, National Geographic, Fast Company, New York Observer, Rhapsody Magazine, VICE News, and more. I've traveled the world in search of stories over the past ten years - most recently to Cuba with Earthwatch to map biodiversity in an ecological reserve. In May, I joined an expedition to Lake Sibinacocha in Peru to write a feature article for Hemispheres Magazine on the race to conserve the unique high-altitude watershed. Previously, in Afghanistan I worked with young entrepreneurs building economic stability amid war.  On a personal note, I journeyed through the past to discover my grandparent’s adventures in aviation for Rhapsody Magazines' Plane Spoken essay for the May 2018 issue entitled Air Romance. I am chipping away at my own private pilot's license to uphold the family tradition. 

I am passionate about environmental leadership to protect the natural world and its extraordinary biodiversity. Historically, I've visited many regions to learn first-hand about field projects supported by social enterprise as keys for community health and prosperity. Read my interview about the importance of communicating hard truths.
