I am an author, writer, researcher, communications strategist, keynote speaker, and conference facilitator. My specialities include climate change, clean energy, sustainability, and social responsibility, well as health, parenting, and social change.

I am coauthor with the psychologist Daniel Goleman of Ecoliterate, a book that tells inspiring stories of how people are advancing issues related to food, water, and energy through a new integration of emotional, social, and ecological intelligence.

I was founding director of a national education project for the Human Rights Campaign Foundation; communications director for the Center for Ecoliteracy; and facilitator of a major climate change communications conference for the Institute at the Golden Gate.

A former Harvard University fellow and New York University faculty member, my articles and essays have appeared in The New York Times, Christian Science Monitor, Daily Beast, Huffington Post, More, Mothering, and many other publications and books.
