““If we are to achieve a richer culture, rich in contrasting values, we must recognize the whole gamut of human potentialities, and so weave a less arbitrary social fabric, one in which each diverse gift will find a fitting place.” (Margaret Mead)”

What do you do?

I make art, music, and books that reflect my interests in world culture and ecological issues.


My experiences living in West Africa inspired me to write about different ways of being in, and relating to, the natural world around us. Revitalizing and respecting traditional indigenous knowledge is crucial to our future, because dealing with our current and future ecological and social challenges will require more than one narrow worldview. I strive to make art, music, and stories that inspire my audience to look deeper into the importance of both biological and cultural diversity, and to see that a more beautiful world is possible.
