I was born in 1985, in Virginia, and grew up in Maryland. In college I studied English and biology. Out of college I drifted---from Vermont to Scotland, and from there to Sweden, where I worked on farms for three months, and discovered my love for manual labor. I’ve had a long-standing fascination with the desert, amplified by a trip I took by myself to the Nambib desert while studying in South Africa, and by a recent foray through New Mexico, the beauty of which I was completely unprepared for. It’s unbelievable to me that I am being given the opportunity to live and work in the desert, and to play a small part in preserving its future.
