Other Sustainability Notes

As the preponderance of my work is created in pristine natural environments, my process is inextricably linked to the environment. It is clear that the fragile ecosystems of earth are under threat from climate change, overpopulation, unsustainable extraction and various other attacks. Public policy is not keeping pace with the science, and it has become clear that individuals and brands must use what resources and platforms they have available to drive positive change. In order to take a leadership role in the sustainability revolution that needs to succeed across the human landscape, I will actively seek to practice and espouse sustainable personal and business practices.
