I am a planner. I assist communities to envision their future, chart a path to achieve it and make sure that future and journey are ecologically restorative, economically generative and socially just.
I am an educator of environmental planning, policy and science. I create experiential learning opportunities that place students in high touch situations where they can observe, engage, synthesize and reflect.
I am a scholar of environmental planning. I use the social-ecological lens to explore issues of engagement, conflict and decision making at community, watershed and regional scales. I often work in the infrastructure-ecological space, such as at the food-water-energy nexus.
