Welcome to my website. I’m a magazine, newspaper and online journalist who currently works as a reporter at EnergyWire, where I write about how energy technology is changing our lives. Prior to this position I penned the ‘Man vs. Nature’ blog for Forbes, contributed to many publications including Popular Science, Men’s Journal and The New York Times, and created ‘Innovate,’ an award-winning energy column in Sierra magazine. Take a look at the most recent newsletter, or poke around some of my favorite writings below.
