From the beginning of 2008 until 2015, I wrote about green design and sustainability at and served as Architecture Editor. I also wrote for Inhabitat's sister sites: Inhabitots and Ecouterre. I have written for the likes of and, and other various online blogs and magazines, as well as on etté studios, my former blog on eco art and sustainable DIY. Beyond the blog world, you can see my writing about green living on the hyper-local site as well as print publications like eVolo Magazine, Eco-Structure, Residential ArchitectNatural Home & Garden MagazineMontage Magazine and Alpine Modern. Please note that some of these may no longer be online.

My first book, Urgent Architecture: 40 Sustainable Housing Solutions for a Changing World was published in March, 2013 through W.W. Norton. Urgent Architecture showcases 40 successful emergency and long-term housing projects—from repurposed shipping containers to sandbag homes. She surveys successful structures as well as highlighting promising projects that are still being developed. Every one is quickly deployable, affordable, and sustainable. This book is an essential resource for those who are interested in green building, sustainable design, eco-friendly materials, affordable housing, material reuse, and humanitarian relief.
 Down Deso is my emotional journey rafting down the Green River through Desolation Canyon in Utah when I determined that I wanted to be an artist. The seven day trip is recounted through journal entries, drawings, and paintings that tell the story of my time on the river, the adventures we had, as well as my thoughts and feelings about where I stood in life and the hopes and dreams I held for the future. The book is written in sketchbook format and includes paintings and drawings based on my time spent on the river. The book was self-published in 2018 and is available through my shop.
