I am a writer and photographer currently living on the Emerald Coast of Florida. I have a Master’s Degree in Environmental Management from the Duke Nicholas School of the Environment, where I specialized in Ecosystem Science and Conservation. I am also a National Geographic Young Explorer, completing four trips to the Maine North Woods in each of the four seasons, Fall 2015-Summer 2016.

I am the Communications and Marketing Coordinator for the Choctawhatchee Basin Alliance, as well as a regular contributor to online and in print publications. Passionate about environmental communications, Ryan Huang and I co-founded the creative consultancy Terra Communications, LLC, and I founded and edit the travel website One World, Two Feet.
