I’m Morgan.


I connect people to nature, to each other, and to their communities, ampliflying underrepresented voices and pulling up chairs for those who deserve to be at the table. I am a conduit of positive change, which doesn't always mean 'development' or 'growth' but does always mean healthy conversation and an open door. A completed project is never the finish line, instead it’s the foundation for stronger collaboration and deeper community impact.
