As an independent journalist and feature writer, I cover transportation, infrastructure, politics, economics and the environment. I am a correspondent for Trains magazine and have written for The Atlantic/CityLab, Pacific Standard, Sierra magazine, Hakai and Mongabay.
My writing career began as a business journalist for the Ward's family of automotive industry publications, reporting on manufacturers and suppliers as well as consumer, marketing and government issues. My byline has also appeared in the San Francisco Chronicle, San Jose Mercury News and Newsday.
I've been asked to make radio and speaking appearances and have been profiled in several articles. My fine art photography has been exhibited in galleries and juried shows in Los Angeles and Maine, and I sometimes shoot for my stories.
My career also included corporate communications, where I led public relations accounts for major international brands, and co-ownership of an award-winning Los Angeles-based video production company with household-name clients.
I am a member of the Society of Professional Journalists (SPJ), Investigative Reporters & Editors (IRE) and the Society of Environmental Journalists (SEJ).
