My childhood years were spent in suburban Australia with a backyard full of beetles, birds, spiders and lizards. Later I lived in Canada and then New York City, learning to embrace a different kind of nature.
A lover of the planet by design, I have been a photographer by profession for for over 20 years in both New York and Sydney. I recently co-edited an environmental book called One Hundred and One Reasons To Get Out of Bed, and host a podcast called My Home Planet as an extension of that book.
I am a volunteer at my local wildlife rescue organisation WIRES, hold a Bachelor of Arts from UCONN, am a member of the Society of Environmental Journalists, a pre-selection judge for the 2017-18 New York Wild film festival and recently launched a pilot program with local schools, aimed at reconnecting children to nature through the creative use of technology-called Twig2Nature.
And I've just launched Twig.fm, a digital channel of extraordinary podcasts by women for the planet. Please check it out and join the Twig tribe. Thanks!!
