I’m an author, activist, experiential educator, environmentalist, edutainment materials designer and mom. For one reason or another, my life has been six degrees…from nearly everything. A Life in Many Small Parts includes random writings and thoughts drawn from life experiences, a deep well of family history, eco-etiquette and more…
I began my career at NBC, RCA, Nickelodeon, MTV and The Movie Channel. I went on to Scholastic and several other publishing and edutainment companies. For the past 20+ years, I’ve been working to create healthy, sustainable communities through awareness, advocacy and action.
I write for print and online publications and blogs. Some of my published pieces include: “Back to the Garden,” The Sacred Table, CCAR Press, New York, NY; “Reconnecting with Nature to Sustain Ourselves,” The Mountains Shall Drip Wine, Creighton University Press, Omaha, NE; “Forging a Response to Climate Change,” Pursuing the Global Common Good, Principle and Practice in U.S. Foreign Policy, Center for American Progress, Washington, DC; AIDS, Teen Hot Line, Raintree Steck-Vaughn Publishers, Austin, TX; as well as several projects for the book, magazine and software divisions of Scholastic, Inc., New York, NY.
I’ve been the scriptwriter, designer and educational consultant for many edutainment products including: Who Is Oscar Lake?, LPI Productions/Jersey Cow Software, Co. (an interactive language learning adventure); Writing to Write, JHM CORP (a multi-million dollar IBM product to improve literacy); Toby Terrier and His Video Pals video series, Tiger Electronics and for Nickelodeon’s product launch at FAO Schwarz.
