Post subject:  Introducing Myself & the Heart of the Ark App


I am a writer, educator, and animal advocate. I help out the local shelter (Northeast Animal Shelter) and write a column called State of the Ark for Organic Spa Magazine. I just released a new iOS app inspired by our connection to animals, called Heart of the Ark™. The app consists of an interactive digital deck of “Ark Cards,” a Field Journal, and an E-Booklet. The text side of each card presents a summary of a particular animal’s natural history and symbolism, as well as insightful suggestions for applying that animal’s symbolism to your life. A digital collage is presented on the illustration side.

Prior to getting involved in app development, I worked as an instructional designer and curriculum developer for The Discovery Channel, Nature Company, Boston’s Museum of Science, and other organizations. In 2004, I was the recipient of the 2004 United States Humane Society’s Award for “Innovation in the Study of Animals and Society” for developing the graduate-level education course, “Symbolism and Spirit of the Animal Kingdom.” To support animal welfare, I am donating 5% of proceeds to the Humane Society of the United States on an on-going basis, and a higher percentage during certain publicity opportunities.

I am looking for ways to promote the app to animal groups, and for publicity ops with high exposure, during which I would raise the percentage of contribution to the beneficiary (USHS) to 50% or more . If anyone has any ideas, please contact me. Thank you!
