Witnessing Hosting Educating

I am a writer and experiential educator convinced that education is about building the world we want to live in.

I draw on my graduate studies at Harvard University (MA in History, 2015) and at Oxford University (BA in History and English, 2013).

I have designed and led expeditionary learning programs with Kroka Expeditions in Ecuador and New Hampshire, Outward Bound in Maine, and Naturalists at Large in California, teaching college-accredited courses in literature, history, and Spanish language while mountain biking, mountaineering, and paddling.

I believe that knowledge and compassion are embodied and I have spent the past year living, researching, and serving in borderlands in Israel/Palestine, Arizona/Sonora, Mexico, and El Paso/Juárez, Mexico. I came to El Paso in January 2019 with only what I carried on my bike, intending to stay for five days. The full-hearted welcome I received as a stranger broke my heart open and convinced me to stay.

After four years of leadership and wilderness expeditions in North and South America, I am planting seeds in El Paso.
