More about me

My passion for design and learning follows me from work to my personal life. I have been a contributing writer for the sustainable design blog Inhabitat.com for many years. I love this hobby of writing about design keeps me on my toes with what is new and notable. 


I also speak about design at conference, colleges, and other design-related events. You can find more information on my upcoming talks here.

I love being active and outside! I have thoroughly enjoyed multi-day hikes on the Appalachian trail, kayaking in Belize, sitting beside the Havasupai Reservation waterfalls in the Grand Canyon, and scaling my way into the Black Canyon in Gunnison, CO.

When I'm closer to home, I can be found cycling, at the gym, practicing yoga, vermicomposting, or spending quality time with my husband and my lovable Bernese Mountain Dog.
