I create maps that tell stories, share information, and cultivate curiosity about the natural world and our place within it.
Maps are a balance of form (beauty, style, aesthetics) and function (navigation, information, storytelling). My maps are used and enjoyed by a wide spectrum of nature appreciators and adventure seekers: ultramarathon runners navigating a backcountry race course, plant lovers exploring a public garden in the Bay Area, a family backpacking the Oregon section of the Pacific Crest Trail together.

Pacific Northwest Vegetation Zones. Map for the 3rd edition of Gardening with Native Plants (Kruckeberg, Chalker-Scott). In previous editions, this map was in black and white and called for a refresh. I created a custom color palette for 10 zones (plus the ocean), re-created zone boundaries, added labels for more context, and cleaned up the layout.
