WRITER + AUDIO PRODUCER
Growing up on a tiny New England island, the natural world influenced Georgia's every breath. As a writer and audio journalist, she creates fictions and nonfictions that make complicated subjects accessible to all, especially those they impact. A climate-anxious activist, Georgia is fascinated by the task of surviving and connecting in a troubled world.

An original podcast series featuring the voices of young people who are powering the climate movement.
