With a profound dedication to the rights of nature and human health enhancement, my career bridges technology, education, and nature-based wellness. Through my Ph.D. research at the University of British Columbia, I apply a global perspective to develop nature-based wellness experiences, upholding environmental stewardship and fostering well-being. My experience spans Canada, the U.S., and Japan, where I’ve established nonprofits and tech startups and contributed to major software companies and academic institutions.
My expertise lies in curating personalized wellness experiences that are scientifically validated and rooted in forest therapy, acoustic ecology, and salutogenesis principles. I offer a comprehensive suite of services, including physical and digital nature immersion experiences, all supported by empirical research. Transitioning from a tech entrepreneur grappling with burnout to a certified guide in nature and forest therapy and dedicated to ongoing forest and human health research, I am dedicated to supporting ecosystems through non-invasive nature connectedness activities that benefit individuals and organizations.
