My path as a writer and scientist passionate about water started with my first career, guiding on the Colorado in Grand Canyon and other Western rivers.
Between boating seasons, I trained as a fluvial geologist (focused on river deposits), then worked as both a researcher and science writer/editor. Today I team with other writers and scientists on articles, books, and watershed projects.
My work has been in Aeon, Brevity, Hakai, Hunger Mountain, More, Orion, The San Francisco Chronicle Magazine, Shenandoah, Sierra, and many other publications. Always, I’m driven by these questions: How do we perceive water and wild nature? How does our relation to them affect our culture?
Now I’m finishing a second novel, water-driven prose set in Alberta, and giving occasional workshops in both geology and writing. Every opportunity to teach or speak with others provides a welcome chance for me to learn more as well.
