Less is more

Ultimately, a lot of the more technical questions about how to reduce our ecological footprints are intrinsically linked to what it is that we actually value in life. If our primary concern continues to be exclusively to get from Point A to Point B as quickly as possible — literally speeding past a wealth of experiences and sights along the way — then no matter how brilliant the alternative energy grids we come up with, we humans are going to continue to chase our own tail while burning up our resources.

Writer. In the summers, I live and work in the incredible state of Alaska, in the bush community of McCarthy, as the Executive Director of the Wrangell Mountain Center. When not in McCarthy, you'll typically find me in the Santa Cruz Mountains of California, writing and working with local activists. My primary writing project right now is a novel set in remote bush Alaska, of the magical realism genre wherein an earnest and independent young woman finds a mysterious radio belonging to her grandmother, a device that has paranormal bandwidth and a disturbing ability to mess with one's mental stability.
