 My passion lies in exploring remote places of the planet and learning about the way people use and understand their natural resources, particularly water. Exploring the ways in which cultures are impacted by their water systems and how perspective of water influences decision making is increasingly fascinating.  I am convinced that what we call wastewater is a valuable resource that needs to be more thoroughly discussed in conversations regarding a sustainable future.
