Fueled by passion and curiosity, I tell stories of connection, responsibility, and action in the age of the Anthropocene.
I’m the the New York Times Bestselling author of:
- WHERE AM I WEARING? A Global Tour to the Countries, Factories, and People That Make Our Clothes
- WHERE AM I EATING? An Adventure Through the Global Food Economy
- WHERE AM I GIVING? A Global Adventure Exploring How to Use Your Gifts and Talents to Make a Difference
- A forthcoming title from Patagonia Books on regenerative agriculture.
My writing has appeared in places such as the Christian Science Monitor and has aired on NPR.
I’m also the cofounder of the Facing Project and The Facing Project Press which seek to create empathy and understanding through stories that inspire action. I have an MFA in Creative Writing from Miami University and have taught classes on composition, creative writing, and global agriculture.
I’ve spent the night in Castle Dracula in Romania, herded cattle in lion-country in Kenya, played PlayStation in Kosovo, farmed on four continents, taught an island village to play baseball in Honduras, and in another life, worked as a SCUBA instructor in Key West, Florida.
