I'm a journalist with nearly two decades of experience who specializes in telling stories about science, technology, and the environment. As the editor of OnEarth.org, the award-winning website of OnEarth magazine, I edit in-depth features, publish provocative columns, and contribute reviews, personal essays, and investigative reporting to the online and print editions.
Previously I spent 12 years as a newspaper reporter, covering everything from Hurricane Katrina to the Super Bowl. In 2007 I earned a masters degree in science journalism from Columbia University, where I now teach as an adjunct professor. I have freelanced for Scientific American, Slate, the New York Times, Business Insider, Oceanus, and several nonprofit clients.
