I am the Assistant Policy Director at the Michael Fields Agricultural Institute in Madison, WI. My position allows me to engage and work on policy issues that affect sustainable agriculture, an umbrella that encompasses urban agriculture and its practices.
As a Milwaukee native, I am very interested in urban ag projects happening in the city. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have or are interested in pursuing a project where you think my, or my organization's, expertise may be helpful.

The Michael Fields Agricultural Institute is a non-profit organization with the mission to nurture the ecological, social and economic resiliency of food and farming systems through education, research, policy, and market development.
We envision an ever-creative cultural process in which farmers and consumers create agricultural landscapes with healthy regional systems of land use, food production and distribution.
Since our founding in 1984, we have worked to realize this vision.
