Microbestiary I wrote four commissioned poems on specific microbes for the bestiary, a project from Erin Bentley that highlights the complexity, variety, and beauty of microbes and their interactions through accessible information, art, and imaginative responses.

The Telepoem Booth — Several of my poems were selected for inclusion in the public art piece, the Telepoem Booth, a 1970s phone booth that one can dial-a-poem. Recorded and produced by Elizabeth Hellstern. These poems were exhibited in Flagstaff and Mesa, Arizona from March 2016 to October 2017.

Wyoming Public Media — During a podcast internship in 2019, I contributed to conceptual brainstorming sessions; contacted and interviewed subjects using various recording equipment; edited audio; and gave and received feedback during editorial sessions, including for HumaNature Episode 64: Migrations.
