I'm a San Francisco-based freelance travel and environment 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. 

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