Career Goals

Looking to make a career transition from higher-ed teaching to working full-time for ecological justice and a sustainable future. I envision working with a nationally or globally relevant environmental organization using my talents, passion, and experience as a community climate science activist, researcher, web designer/coder, content creator, science communicator, and/or STEM educator. Seeking flexible remote position or contract work in the Pacific Northwest USA or British Columbia (dual citizen) in an educational, organizational, professional, or technical capacity.
