Humanitarian at heart and creative problem solver by nature, Sylvia is a change maker who believes that solutions come from unlikely places and the world thrives when we all do well. A true global citizen, Sylvia was born in Bolivia to American parents doing international development work abroad, and raised between various countries in Latin America and the mountain wilderness of a small town in Colorado. These experiences profoundly shaped how she sees the world, fueled her belief that we are all part of one big global village, and fostered her love of wild places.
Sylvia has lived and worked in Brazil, Mexico, Bolivia, Ecuador, Guatemala, El Salvador, the United States, and the UK. She has worked for organizations including the Santa Fe Dreamers Project, the National Park Service, the Inter-American Culture and Development Foundation, SFAI, and as a contributing faculty member at the Corcoran College of Art + Design and Santa Fe University of Art and Design. Her films have been featured in film festivals around the world. Sylvia is a National Geographic Explorer, a Fulbright Scholar, a Center for Environmental Filmmaking Scholar, and an Aspen Institute Socrates Seminar grant recipient.
