Writing about what helps people thrive–and engage–in the face of challenges great and small.

I co-authored the book, Ecoliterateand contributed to The Compassionate Instinct, Smart by NatureA Place at the Table and several other books. A former Harvard University fellow and Ashoka Changemakers thought leader, my articles have appeared in The New York Times, Forbes, Daily Beast, Huffington Post, More, Vox, and elsewhere.

These days, I’m interested in what encounters with challenges ranging from climate change to relationships reveal about human nature, and how those insights can be applied to both social and personal issues. For example, I explore how we relate to risk, think about power, navigate fear, respond to change, develop resilience–and, above all, rise to what once seemed impossible.
