Your narrative is always changing. Are you changing your stories to reflect your new reality? — New post on LinkedIn! 
As I wander through cities, one of the things I look for is evidence of fresh construction. Cities are living, breathing, pulsating organisms, and a great indicator of change is the number of cranes

Loved this post, Sarah! It's funny how hard we make it for ourselves to just... ask :). I'll keep this mind when I go for my next round of funding :D

The world is not transactional. Love and light are expansive. Giving isn’t part of a zero-sum game. When you give, you don’t lose — you get something else in return, and the world keeps moving.
Even the charity: water staff who’ve never met Sarah Peck know her name. She's famous in our office. Not for the number of campaigns that she's run or eve

"Write about a culture that has forgotten. Write about how lonely people are. Write about what no one else is saying.” —

People are saying it's a must-read. Life-changing. Shiver inducing.

Much of the lives that people create for themselves are done behind the scenes, in homes and offices and in email inboxes that we never see. The way you're doing it doesn't have to be the way it is. You can create new ideas, stories, and even processes for getting things done.

For me, I loved spending Friday nights in, working on essays and dreaming up projects--it was an uninterrupted set of 4 or 5 hours that I could just work and dream, and get a head start on my weekend. In college, I used to try to get my work done on the Friday evening session so I could rest (and swim) all weekend and not have so much piled up on Sundays before the week began all over again.

How can you imagine or create a different world? It doesn't have to look like anything else. It doesn't have to be what you think it is.

Story
Tagline
It starts with | DO | project starter. storyteller. designer. writer. open water swimmer.
Introduction
I am a storyteller, designer and DO-er. I love projects and ideas. I like to build things and explain things. 

In my work, I communicate ideas through words, pictures, and other visual media. I am a writer, designer, researcher and problem-solver. During the day, I work as a communications specialist for an international landscape architecture company. 

As designers, we figure things out by hands-on, sleeves-up practice, and I learn and teach best by doing. I love figuring out how things are made and describing how things work to other people.

I am interested in the tools with which designers communicate their ideas - graphically, publicly, and in written works - and the influence that landscape architects can have on both our immediate and future environments.
