About meTourism and sustainability consultant working with destinations, tour operators, and ecolodges across the world. Daily inspired by this lil planet of ours.
My consulting practice is rooted in science-based models for sustainable tourism development, and driven by the belief that travel can transform our understanding of the world (and ourselves), empower local culture, and help to create a more sustainable, equitable, and resilient planet. Currently working with Regenerative Travel and EplerWood International. Previously Sustainability Officer for National Geographic Travel. Can (and will!) stretch luggage beyond its limits to enjoy a thrifted record, bottle of locally-made booze, piece of art, one-of-a-kind accessory, or perfect bakery treat back at home in DC.
