I'm a San Francisco-based freelance writer fascinated by the history, culture and geography of our world.

As a Ph.D. in Anthropology, I've been trained to observe and tell  unique stories. I'm especially interested in climate change and human impacts on the environment, particularly issues of access to food and water. I am the author of Water[b]logged, a blog about global water security.

Access samples of my work and check out my travels around the world through my Instagram feed below.
