New Art: Endanger Cancer, not Elephants

I created this piece, Endanger Cancer, not Elephants, because I love and am passionate about saving elephants – and because I know several breast cancer survivors. I want this to be a symbol of hope for them. On the surface, elephant poaching and cancer may seem like vastly different issues – and you’d be right to say […]

Elephants - Nat. Geo.

Blog Feature at “Darden Digest;” link to “Eluxe Magazine”

As many of you know, during the week of August 10, I was fundraising and advocating for The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, National Geographic’s Cause An Uproar and Save The Elephants. On social media (facebook and twitter), I announced I’d be donating 100% of my earnings (Aug. 13) to elephant conservation, to celebrate World Elephant Day and my […]

Rorogoi - Sheldrick Wildlife Trust

Fostering Rorogoi

On August 14, through The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, I opted to foster Rorogoi, a beautiful elephant orphan. Born August 10, 2012, Rorogoi was 14 months old when she was rescued by the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust.  Following a likely incident of poaching, Rorogoi survived for over a month on her own.  How she did this is a […]

Lions 3

It’s World Lion Day!

UPDATE (8/10):  $20.00 was donated to CAUSE AN UPROAR following my shift at work today! Today is World Lion Day – and it would have been my Grandma Sarah’s 77th birthday! In memoriam, and to raise awareness and funds, I’m asking you to join me on my quest to “Cause an Uproar!”  I’m declaring that 25% […]

Elephant - Nat. Geo. 3

“Hello August,” said the Elephant.

“Hello August,” said the Elephant. August could not reply, for August was nothing tangible with which the Elephant could communicate.  But the Elephant knew she was in the presence of August – in the presence of the waning African winter.  She had survived another minute – another hour – another day – another month.  She’d survived another season, and […]

From Greenpeace USA's "Everything is NOT Awesome," 2014

Greenpeace USA’s anti-Shell effort (in pictures)

On July 8, conservation group Greenpeace USA released a video titled Everything is NOT Awesome. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qhbliUq0_r4 Partnered with a creative agency Don’t Panic, Greenpeace used a slowed, melodic version of “Everything is Awesome” to score a host of artistically beautiful, yet harrowing images.  Together, they created a world overrun by corporate greed while promoting a strong conservation […]
