What’s a place you love in the Midwest?

Isle Royale National Park in the Upper Peninsula. Hard not to love the tranquility and beautiful sunsets.

What drives you to do this work?

If left unaddressed, climate change will profoundly destabilize both our local surroundings and the global dynamic that is necessary to ensure that countries continue to cooperate for the greater good. Quite simply, I don’t want to grow old in a world that is falling to pieces.
