I am a writer, naturalist, educator and trip leader living in Kampala, Uganda. I live by the words “May your path go ever forward but never straight.” The twists and turns of my life have taken me through many interests and many corners of the globe.
I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Buddhist Studies and a Master’s Degree in Conservation Education, which really aren’t as different as you might think.
I have lived as a sea kayaking guide in Alaska, a wanderer in India, an electrician in Colorado and even held a desk job or two along the way.
I taught Natural History and Ecology of the Pacific Northwest as adjunct faculty at University of Washington, through the graduate program in Education, Environment and Community at IslandWood on Bainbridge Island. While at IslandWood I also taught field-based environmental education to kids of all ages and facilitated corporate retreats for Boeing, Starbucks, DLR Group, and many others.
My main focus now is on writing, and through this blog I hope to make people think. I try to take the issues that pop up in Uganda and put a slightly different twist on them. If you have been reading my posts, I hope I have made you a bit uncomfortable at times.
