I've spent two decades in the business of saving our Earth. After leaving my role at the United Nations, I traveled the world studying the impacts of sustainability first-hand in factories, on fields, and in Fortune 500s. 

I share my message through books, consulting to businesses, and keynote speaking to audiences around the world.


I am the author of two books. “Sustainability for the Rest of Us: Your No-Bullshit, Five-Point Plan for Saving the Planet” has been described as “…a foundational read for practical sustainability in the 21st century” and “…one of the best sustainability resources available to date.” I’m also excited to be helping consumers make smarter decisions through my recently published second book, “The Great Greenwashing: How Brands, Governments, and Influencers are Lying to You.” 

My mission is to move sustainability from theory to practical strategies that help people and businesses confidentially make real impact. Because, ultimately, if we really want to make impactful change, it’s time to dramatically reconsider our approach, message, and outdated ideas of what it’s going to take to save the planet.
