About

My articles have taken readers to a wind farm where looming turbines sweep every inch of the vast Kansas sky; the cave-like depths of a flood-control dam in rural Vermont that prevents millions of dollars in damage downstream; the slightly fishy-smelling Manhattan loft that was sanctuary to over a thousand turtles; and the mouth of New England’s largest bat cave, among the fluttering wings of dozens of bats emerging from hibernation.

My mission as a journalist is to write vivid stories that don’t merely engage readers’ intellect, but also create a reading experience built on senses and emotions to feed a deeper understanding of important issues.

I have written for magazines such as Nature Conservancy, Scientific American, Popular Mechanics, Woodland, OnEarth, Yale e360, Wildlife Conservation, Wildflower, and National Wildlife.

My articles have appeared in newspapers including The Boston Globe, The Christian Science Monitor,  The Rutland Herald, and The Hartford Courant. I was a frequent contributor to Newsday‘s weekly science section for five years.

I contributed several essays to the book The Outside Story: Local writers explore the nature of New Hampshire and Vermont (and one essay to The Outside Story, Volume 2). I also contributed the essay on native plants to the Encyclopedia of New England.

I am a member of the National Association of Science Writers and the Society of Environmental Journalists.
