—About Me —

I am a South Carolina native, instilled with a regard for the natural environment that makes Charleston one of the greatest places to live, work, and play. I advocate for positive change in the South Carolina Lowcountry as an active partner in organizations such as The Sustainability Institute, the City of Charleston Department of Planning, Preservation & Sustainability, and Passport 72. When not creating masterpieces in the garden or kitchen, I can be found enjoying life with dogs on the rivers and beaches of the Lowcountry.
