I’m a writer based in Northampton, Massachusetts. After graduating from Middlebury College in 2011 with a B.A. in Environmental Studies, I spent eleven months walking across the United States, recording interviews with the people I met along the way. I co-produced a radio documentary about my walk that was featured on Transom.org and This American Life, and my book, Walking to Listen, will be published in April 2017 by Bloomsbury. I teach walking and listening as practices in connective presence wherever I am invited, and hang my shingle as a speaker, too, melding unscripted wondering, discussion, and storytelling as fodder for the collective conversation about the experience of being human.
