Penn graduated from Franklin & Marshall College with a joint major in Environmental Studies & Creative Writing. He finds interest in writing about human's connection to nature through journalism, non-fiction reflection, and music in hopes that his relevant ideologies and systems of thinking will motivate others to take action or at least reflect on the way they live their own lives.
So far Penn's written news articles for: Eco-Watch, 350 Massachusetts, 350.org, his local newspaper The New Bedford Standard Times and his alma mater's newspaper The College Reporter.
In 2015, after spending several months in Montrose, Pennsylvania working with an Energy Justice Network project, The Energy Justice: Shale Initiative, on the front lines of fracking and shale gas extraction, he recorded his debut singer-songwriter album For The Trees. In 2016, after much more traveling, honing his craft, and adventures he recorded his second solo recordExperiencing Turbulence. He recently released his latest song Give Yourself To Love and continues to write daily, now living and performing in Austin, TX.
Captivated by the lack of action he sees in today's world, Penn endlessly writes environmental reflections, songs, and stories in hopes of inspiring others to action. He writes because he wants people to see we're fighting for something more important than personal gain. We're fighting for the justice the people of this world deserve and to stop the exploitation of the many for the benefit of the few. In his opinion, a peaceful co-existence will be the only way to achieve a balance with the natural world.
