I am a writer, naturalist, and a ethnobiologist. I believe transcendentalism and romanticism have much substance to continue into modern thought. These eras of though have inspired many of the themes of my poetry and non-fiction. My interests in biological sciences have been founded by a deep appreciation of nature, and the beauty of the natural world. These interests led me to obtain by Bachelors of Science, studying biology and anthropology. With this background, I hope to research and express the importance of humankind’s relationship to their environment and the spiritual world. My main research is focused on shamanism, evolution of creativity, and influences of music on cognition.
