About

Welcome!

I’m a globetrotting garden photographer who has visited places as far from the PNW as South Korea, Japan, Sweden, Germany, Portugal, Canada and Australia.  I’m passionate about all the nerdy things and am currently obsessed with drought-tolerant gardening.

I’m currently between gardens, having recently sold my Seattle home.  I can’t wait to start my new studio garden entirely from seed, designed to survive without watering it at all throughout our dry Pacific Northwest summers, and yet sail through our 48 inches of endless winter rain.

When I’m not out photographing gardens, you can find me behind the screen writing web content, or getting my hands dirty creating beautiful seasonal container plantings.

Publications

I’m proud to have my writing and photography included in the following magazines:

  • American Gardener
  • Edible Seattle
  • Hobby Farms Online
  • RHS’ The Garden

Over-educated

In addition to my degree in biochemistry, I hold certificates in Permaculture Design, Small-Farming and Ranching, and have completed the Pro-Hort Master Pruning course.

Not just a pretty face

I’m  available for freelance writing assignments in Organic Certification documentation, FDA compliance documentation, Tissue-Culture and Laboratory protocol documentation, Copywriting, WordPress-wizardry, editorial work and freelance photography, in addition to small-space garden design and seasonal container installation and maintenance.
