I'm a writer and small business owner in San Francisco, CA. I love to explore and tell stories about the natural world and the incredible people in it. In a former life, I was an Anthropologist (Ph.D). I use those skills - thoughtful observation and talking to new people - in my writing. I love the outdoors and am an avid backpacker, hiker and camper. I'm passionate about environmental issues and advocate for water and climate awareness in my blog Water[b]logged.
I am also a Certified Professional Dog Trainer and own Modern Hound Dog Training in San Francisco. I have extensive knowledge about animal behavior and have written a number of articles about traveling with pets, dog training, pet health and fun pet lifestyle pieces.
