I am an anthropologist, ethnobotanist and film maker, and have worked with diverse indigenous peoples of Peru, Brazil, Mexico, Asia and the Middle East, with most of my research focused on traditional medicine, shamanism, and human-nature relations in Amazonia. Raised in the Tidewater area of Virginia, I graduated from Princeton University and did my Ph.D. in medical anthropology at the University of California at Berkeley. I have learned a number of languages throughout my travels including French, German, Polish, Arabic and indigenous languages including Matsigenka, Yaminahua, Tzeltal and Tzotzil Maya, and others. I have lived in Brazil for 20 years, and currently work at the Goeldi Museum in Belem. I am on a temporary visiting position at the American Museum in New York, and am looking for a place to stay in New York 2-3 nights a week to ease the long commute from Princeton, where I am staying with a college friend.
