Wild With Nature

The stories of nature fascinate me. Wild With Nature is my way of celebrating and sharing them. The details, of course, are unique to each place on this earth—but the connection is universal.

The connection of water

Every month, I publish stories exploring these rich details and universal themes. I draw on my own depths of experience as a field naturalist in the northwestern United States. In many of my stories, I also collaborate with biologists, artists, and more, celebrating the many ways people can connect with nature.

Sometimes I share poems here, too, but there’s no regular publication schedule for those. I also write for magazines, including Montana Outdoors and BirdWatching

Unless I indicate otherwise, all of the photographs on Wild With Nature are my own.
