Wonder + Wildness

Chasing wonder on a science guided journey through the natural world in search of meaning, connections, and the courage to hope


The Blog


The Podcast

The Wild Life blog + podcast is my place of exploration, and I hope it can be for you, too. For years, I’ve had a hard time landing. It’s only recently I decided it’s okay to fly. To create, to seek, to adventure, to find yourself immersed in wonder and oneness with the natural world–that’s what I hope to do with this blog and podcast. Anything and everything from answering small questions to diving deep into the science. The Wild Life blog + podcast follows the threads that connect us all, no matter how thin or how small. Whether you are here for a quick animal ID, to learn some basics about animals, or in search of something more, I appreciate you being here.
