This website is a passion project that emerged spontaneously from my pandemic hobbies. My vision is to serve as a connecting point for people who want to be more involved in the Biophilic movement.
We enjoy integrating biophilic principles into our communities. We work to build culture around caring for the environment and respecting our diverse, interdependent relationships.
This is an independent site featuring my personal photography, poetry, and views. I am not currently sponsored by any organizations.

"Biophilia" is an innate affinity of life or living systems. Erich Fromm first used the term to describe a psychological orientation of being attracted to all that is alive and vital. Architecture, design, and conservation groups continue to apply the concept in new ways.
In his 1984 book Biophilia, Edward O. Wilson introduces the biophilia hypothesis. This work is widely recognized as his "most personal book, an evocation of his own response to nature and an eloquent statement of the conservation ethic. Wilson argues that our natural affinity for life—biophilia—is the very essence of our humanity and binds us to all other living species."
Aristotle elaborates the definition of "philia" as friendship and how this kind of reciprocal relationship leads to happiness.
