I've worked for parks non-profits and conservancies for the last 15 years. My work has included fundraising, managing capital projects, organizing and managing hundreds of volunteer workdays, working as a seasonal horticulturist at an organically maintained park, as well as planning and running hundreds of programs and events. I now work for the Trust for Public Land, researching, analyzing and writing about city park systems. In my spare time, I volunteer for several Boston-area parks and trails non-profit organizations.
