Artist's Statement
I believe that traveling to unfamiliar landscapes rearranges human brains and bodies in important ways, revealing the limits of familiar knowledge, language and patterns, creating opportunities for discomfort and confusion, as well as for delight and awe.

I also believe that it is difficult to care about places we cannot imagine, and that the intimate, inventive and musical voice of poetry provides an opportunity to challenge human distance and alienation from our personal role in environmental crisis, and ultimately stretch our capacity for action and compassion.
