About Me

multimedia journalist covering the environment, food systems, sustainable business, and more

A multi-disciplinary reporter, I've written and photographed for national publications, nonprofits, and local news outlets for more than a decade, covering a wide range of topics: food and fiber systems, outdoor recreation, local economic development, sustainable business, social finance, and more. Lately, I'm exploring the ways everyday people all over the world are affected by (and responding to) environmental degradation and climate change. I'm currently working on stories reported in Mongolia, the Philippines, Italy, and California.

My hope is always to leave readers feeling more connected with the world around them and the people in it. I am drawn to stories that are complex and deeply human.

When I'm not writing, you'll find me on my bike, racing around a velodrome or riding in the Oakland, CA hills.
