Hi there. My name is Traci Paris and I’m a reader, writer, and amateur naturalist living in Brooklyn, NY.
Slow Nature Fast City is my love letter to the place where I discovered the natural world – New York City. It’s a record of experiments in nature observation, a compendium of places to explore, and a reason to read more deeply.
I’ve made my living thinking about, designing for, being enraptured by, and feeling shackled to the glowing screen. Slow Nature Fast City is a response and reminder – don’t forget to go outside today and see what you can find there.

Here’s an interview where I describe how I began to notice nature after moving to NYC. This film was generously created by Nitin Das from healingforest.org
