Through Keiruna Inc., I work as a consultant in the realm of social-ecological conservation research, evaluation, training, and various aspects of implementation. Informed by extensive on-the-ground experience, primarily in Southeast Asia, my work seeks innovative, socially responsible approaches to ethical & effective conservation, including more equitable representation in the field. In the process, I am continually shaped – personally and professionally – by the people, places, and issues that I encounter. I enjoy sharing these experiences and the ideas they inspire through non-fiction writings, and I hope to build more professional experience as a nonfiction writer this year.
The unifying mission of these endeavors is to make meaningful, tangible positive change in the world (idealistic, yes?) and to raise the profile of underrepresented, but significant, voices and ideas.
