Describe what are you working on in the field of climate change, environmental protection, environmental justice or social impact.

My daily personal choices and those for my businesses are evident to the hundreds of people I deal with in my work.. For further outreach, I have been writing weekly mini-essays on environmental topics for eleven years. Ecofacts were originally subscribed to through the University of California at Santa Barbara's Sustainability site and have since been read in email form and in publications such as the Independent, Santa Barbara View and LA Yoga magazine.

How might other W&E conference attendees be able to support your work, goals or objectives?

By exposing me and others to new perspectives, by sharing knowledge derived from valuable experience.

What are you able and willing to contribute to other attendees at the conference to support their work, goals or objectives?

I am willing to help in whatever ways I am able, e.g. I can offer assistance with audio technical matters, writing, getting word out.
