Career Goals

Looking to make a career transition from teaching higher-ed mathematics full-time to part-time, so that I can have more time to use my passion and experience as a climate activist, science communicator, researcher, and web-designer/coder to work with an environmental justice organization. Seeking flexible remote position or contract work in the northwest USA or British Columbia (dual citizen) in an educational, professional, or technical capacity.
