I am a business consultant, writer, and educator based in the Northeast US passionate about climate change solutions in food and farming. The primary lens for my work is ecological restoration, community wealth building, and food security through agricultural productivity.

As a consultant, I provide food, agriculture, and land-based organizations across sectors with a range of services including special program and project support, business and sales development, event planning and facilitation, and marketing and communications.

As a writer, I cover topics on regenerative agriculture and equitable food system development and provide story telling, interviews, content development, and copywriting on a freelance basis.

As an educator, I create and coordinate programs on food, fermentation, and the intersection of human and ecological health. I have taught numerous workshops on fermented vegetables, koji, and climate change solutions.

A sample of my writing / other projects:

Various interview and written contributions for Hudson River Flows

Growing Chestnuts in the Northeast: a Value Chain Perspective

Nuts for Nuts: Seeding a Nut Industry in the Northeast | Capital Institute

Unlocking the Potential of Place in the Brandywine Valley | Capital Institute

Various Self-Published Articles on Food, Farming, and Sustainability via Medium

In my free time I make a lot of sauerkraut, kimchi, and koji, which I share with the world at @EarthCultures and with my community in Great Barrington, Massachusetts.
