I am a graduate student in the Master of Liberal Arts program at the USF St. Petersburg. In the summer of 2016, I moved to La Paz and conducted an independent study, using John Steinbeck as a guide to Baja California Sur. I documented my findings in a digital “Baja Notebook” on social media, using Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
Baja Naturalist Guide is my final project to earn my degree. The website uses several pages from Baja Notebook to inspire visitors to the region to reconnect with the environment, using literature as a nature and cultural guide. I spent six months in Baja, taking photographs, creating videos, and writing about my experiences. I use several personal photographs on this website. Many others photos, as well as videos and writings can be found on my active Facebook page, Baja Notebook.
After graduation, I plan to return to Baja to drive the entirety of Ruta 1.
