Hello! Pleased to meet you. Here is a little bit about myself.

I’m a science journalist with many extracurricular interests. I’ve reported on how cities work, how agriculture works, how our bodies work. Much of my writing intersects with climate change and what we’re going to do about it, which is the biggest story of our time, whether we would like it to be or not.

I’m a big believer in solutions journalism, as well a believer that environmental journalists need to investigate solutions just as fiercely as we do problems. As time goes on, I see that the work that I do is all different aspects of the same story. There’s how we like to think things get done, and then there’s how they actually get done. In that distance lies the story.

I’ve studied at UC Berkeley’s Graduate School of Journalism, been a Middlebury Fellow in Environmental Journalism, co-edited a magazine called Meatpaper, and worked as a writer and researcher for a book of maps called Infinite City (and later Nonstop Metropolis, which is the first and only time that a essay that I wrote became a mural at the Queens Museum).  I was a Knight Science Journalism Fellow at MIT and then a staff writer at Grist and also an editor at Sierra Magazine, where I led a redesign of the science section. Right now, I’m working as an editor and researcher, working on a book and writing for a few places, most notably Bay Nature.
