I’m an American writer, artist, and human living in northern Europe.

As a writer, I specialize in researching and synthesizing ideas from across the disciplines of art, science, media, and philosophy into accessible stories that make sense to a broad public.

As an artist, I develop collages and installations that evoke insights from my research into nature, humans, and how they interact. I’m new at this.

As a human, I use these disciplines and others to explore what it means to belong – and how this elusive sense influences every relationship we have with other beings and the world.

Beyond English is my commercial writing, editorial, and communications service – how can I help you?
