I am an independent informal educator who strives to connect people with plants and nature through my programs and projects.
For the past fifteen years, I have encouraged an interest in plants through art, science, and interpretation as the full-time educator, bookseller, and editor at ArtPlantae. I have led programs at environmental education events, botanical gardens, museums, parks, and conferences. While art, science, and interpretation continue to be part of my practice, I am shifting my attention to issues related to the nature of work in informal environmental education.
My current project, The Freelance Condition & Lifelong Learning in Communities, is an investigation into the contributions freelance educators make to lifelong learning.
