Inspired by outings in the backcountry,
motivated by curiosity, concern, and wonder,
I am constantly exploring the connections between Nature and Culture,
considering what those terms might mean in our modern world
and the bonds and boundaries we construct between them.
This journey shapes my writing and teaching,
both of which revolve around the natural environment
and our relationship with it through time.
