My path as a writer and fluvial geologist started with my first career, rowing rafts on the Colorado in Grand Canyon and other Western rivers.
Between river days, I studied water, sediment, and arid landscapes through a science lens. After leaving guiding, I continued to research streams and water, eventually working in environmental consulting. As an independent researcher today, I team with diverse groups of watershed scientists working on groundwater and water-quality projects.
Some of my writing stems from observations in the field as a guide and researcher. I’ve published essays and stories in Aeon, Brevity, Hakai, More, Orion, The San Francisco Chronicle Magazine, Shenandoah, Sierra, and many other journals. Always, my work is driven by these questions: How do we perceive water and wild nature? How does our relation to them affect our culture?
Today I’m writing a third novel, water-driven prose set in Sonoma Valley. I’m also leading workshops in both geology and writing when I can, enjoying continued experiences in both.
