Welcome to my website. I’m a reporter for E&E Publishing in Washington, D.C., and its publication EnergyWire. How is energy technology changing our lives? That question is the focus of my work. As a freelancer, 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, follow me on Twitter, or poke around some of my favorite writings below.
