I moderated a roundtable session on sustainable buildings and communities at the World Sustainable Building 2014 Conference in Barcelona, on Oct. 29. I’m thankful that I got experience last October moderating a plenary session at the Net Zero Cities conference in Fort Collins, Colo. , called "University Cities Leading the Way."

Also, check out my current series of feature interviews on KGNU’s science show, How On Earth, called “The Ocean Is Us.” 

My latest adventure was travelling to Norway’s Arctic city of Tromso to attend the Arctic Frontiers conference in 2014. See my article in Popular Science on the technical and human health implications of a thawing Arctic. 

I'm currently living in Boulder, Colorado, juggling freelance writing and co-hosting "How On Earth," the KGNU science show.  I am also available for editing projects, teaching journalism, and teaching media (and public) communication skills to budding (and existing) scientists.

I also blog periodically for, the website for The Science Writers' Handbook (Da Capo, 2013). I am a proud member of Scilance, a community of 35 science writers who contributed to the book.  

Read my series of articles on the science and implications of a warming Arctic, for Popular Science magazine's website.
