On assignment in Sweden's old growth forests

Environmental journalist and photographer

As an editor for the global news source Mongabay, I work to keep readers informed on the latest developments in conservation news and science. I'm a freelancer for publications like The Guardian, Grist, World Ark, and EcoWatch, and my work has also appeared in National Geographic News Watch, OnEarth, Yale Environment 360, The Sun, and Earth Island Journal (list of recent articles here).

Previously, I was a columnist, photographer, podcaster, and outreach coordinator for the award-winning literary journal of the environment, Orion, for 13 years. I'm also an exhibiting member at the Vermont Center for Photography and a member of the Society of Environmental Journalists.

I am on the editorial board of Terrain.org: A Journal of the Built and Natural Environments, and until 2015 served on the board of Recycled Fish, a nonprofit which advances an ethic of stewardship among anglers. Previously I helped found and served on the board of Co-op Power, a member-owned energy cooperative serving New England which is a national model for community ownership of renewable energy businesses like Northeast Biodiesel.
