Rooted in the firm belief that life-centered design will lead us to a sustainable future, I am a Certified Biomimicry Professional and sustainability expert working to expand the sustainability discussion to business strategy, innovation, product development and systems where significant sustainability and competitive advantage gains await.

As we shift to more fully understand our dependence and participation in our planet’s systems, a new vision of our relationship with life around us demands a rethinking of the impacts of our daily design and consumption decisions both at home and at work. Building on ten years experience at URS Corporation focusing on sustainability in business operations where inefficiencies are largely the result of poor design upstream, I am interested in how the use of biomimicry in innovation can result in disruptive cascading sustainable system innovations that can accelerate our transition to a sustainable future.

The choice is ours. Let’s change our story.

I consult, speak, write and conduct workshops on biomimicry and sustainability for a variety of public and private audiences.
