Who I am. Who am I?
A writer. Everything fascinates me: nature, science, the environment, people. You’ll find my credits in Audubon, The New York Times, High Country News, American Way, Utne Reader, and more. Then come back and take a look at my fiction. I’ll have some posted—soon.
A community volunteer. I was founding president of New York’s first natural cemetery, Greensprings Natural Cemetery Preserve. Greensprings is atop windswept Irish Hill (that “windswept” bit is no cliché) and surrounded by 8,000 acres of protected forestlands 16 miles south of Ithaca, NY.
A public speaker. I work with the Green Burial Council of North America to tell the story of natural burial—what it is, where it’s going, and why it matters.
Of course there’s more—but I’m still building this site, and I’m in no hurry. (Reminds me of how long it took to get running water in the house after we bought it.) Meanwhile, I hope you enjoy what you find here. Please don’t hesitate to leave me a note.
