ABOUT ME

I love to be outdoors working with the environment and people. Giving talks and writing is much of how I try to educate others about what I learn and what we can all do to become more aware. I lecture to students, teachers, universities, TEDx audiences, hotel employees and any group that has an interest in how we all function within our own world.
