“When we try to pick out anything by itself we find that it is bound fast by a thousand invisible cords that cannot be broken, to everything in the universe.”

John Muir

I have a long-standing interest in the exploration of connectivity and the many pathways we can take to explore the patterns created by separation and unity.

An ecologist by training with an interest in landscape process, I have begun to explore socio-ecological approaches to understand and model connections between people and the environment to build resilient communities with my work on the Hedgelaying In The Ontario Landscape Project at the Waterloo Institute for Social Innovation and Resilience.

I research, teach, speak and facilitate

Does the winged life destroy

He who kisses the Joy as it flies

Lives in eternity’s sunrise”
