Looking Forward
“Isn’t this a job for a marine biologist?” is a frequent question. The answer is that I am not a scientist, but a designer, artist, and researcher who believes in communicating science through an ecological lens. Why is the datum of the water’s surface the lowest plane of landscape architecture? If we are restoring ecology, reshaping environments, and crafting policies that shape the human use of these spaces - isn’t that exactly what we do as placemakers on land? Our interaction doesn’t have to end at the water’s edge.  
I look to empower my profession to use these new tools to help us follow our dreams, using emotions to inform, communicate, and guide public engagement with policy, climate, and socio-behavioral change. Reinforcing the importance of experiencing a landscape beyond our physical presence.
