About Me

Before age 23, I lived and worked in 40 states as a disaster relief volunteer, a trail crew member, a budget backpacker, and a toy designer, among other things.

I’m now 25 and have since earned a BFA, completed two AmeriCorps service years, and helped start an urban nonprofit.


Right now I'm launching my first book while building a landscaping business based out of a community garden in New Jersey.


Other plans for 2020 include running cob workshops on the farm (like what these folks do); taking a pilgrimage along the Camino de Santiago in Spain; and spending two months at a wilderness survival school in Maine.

I share periodic updates on these adventures on my blog and in my email newsletter. 


If you're interested, I'd love to include you. Or better yet, you can say hello here or on Facebook.

Thanks for following along!
