I love picking up beautiful textiles when I travel the world; I turned one of my favorite hobbies into a deep dive into which are the most coveted textiles in some favorite travel destinations for Conde Nast Traveler.
I’ve written lots of articles in my time, and I’ve had plenty go viral, but I think this is the first one I’ve ever had to go super-viral! And it’s one of my most favorite things I’ve written about too. Check out the full article on MNN.com here.
Check out my first contribution to Conde Nast Traveler: “Italy’s Free Coffee Tradition and Other Acts of Kindness” What an inspiring way to start the New Year!
As a long-term environmentalist, I have followed Paul Hawken’s work with interest for some time. Though I don’t always agree with him on every issue, I admire his forward-thinking writing and his new project, Drawdown, sounds amazing. Read all about it in the interview I did with him for the December, 2014 issue of Metropolis.
My second piece for Pacific Standard is about how long the effects of rape can last (hint: it’s a lifetime) and why (spoiler: PTSD).
I took a deep dive into feminism, the law and the real-life repercussions of domestic violence on both the battered and the batterers for Pacific Standard. A difficult, intense article to research and write, but fascinating.
My line of original photographs printed on organic cotton fabrics is now available on Ecohabitude. I’d love your support for my project and they DO make great holiday gifts!
I had such a blast putting together this feature for ScientificAmerican.com on how avian researchers use technology to understand how birds fly (there’s still so much to learn about the subject!).
I’ve launched a Kickstarter for my homewares line, based on my years of reporting on sustainable design. I would really appreciate your support.
JORD took some time to ask me some really interesting questions: check out the interview I did with them about my philosophy, sustainability, and more.
I think getting people to think about the real long-term impacts of their actions-whether that’s through infographics, funny videos, articles, art, or TED Talks-is what it’s all about. I’m a believer that once people know that their choices are going to basically screw people over in the future (our current non-sustainable choices are built on a foundation of using future resources today), then the next thought is: “Do I have right to do that?”
