Dedicating my creative energy to our common future, my work has centered on ecological sustainability since 1990. I am best known as creator of NYC’s Green Apple Map and as the founding director of Green Map System, a local-global collaborative eco-cultural organization with 250+ locally-led projects in 40 countries, as seen at Greenmap.org. Each Green Map is unique, yet all use Green Map Icons to identify, promote and link the natural and cultural sites.
My diverse mixed media production projects have promoted renewable energy (Liberty Science Center’s SolSpherica, 2000) and highlighted waste reduction (Times Square’s “self emptying” recycling bins, 1993). I have also taught (NYU, Parsons, Cooper Union), spoken (over 25 conferences and universities) and written on eco-design internationally since 1990. I was appointed Designer in Residence at Cooper Hewitt, National Design Museum, Smithsonian Institute in 1997 and was awarded a 2003 Sea Change residency by Gaea Foundation.
