Hi. This website is about my work in the world.
My work crosses boundaries and is interdisciplinary but united in my concern for human-nature relationships:
I am an Architect, Artist, Writer, Minnesota Design Center U of MN Researcher, Institute on the Environment Fellow, (and citizen-Earthling) working in Green Schools, Environmental Education, Sustainable Design, Environmental Art and Writing.
I am in the process of building this site, and will be adding a list of publications, and more. Meanwhile, I invite you to read the recent installments of "Paradigm Worker," my monthly reflections on how we think about things and why it matters. January's column, Paradigm Workers Unite! [Or Not], explores the title theme of the series. A combined February/March column called Crossing Edges, Shifting Centers considers the role of water in our maps of belonging. April's column, The Braided Breath considers healing lessons from the pandemic. May's column, Epic Alignment, explores the intersection of personal leadership and gaming. And June's column considers the growing movement for Planetary Health .
