I recently reported from Tromso, Norway, where I attended the Arctic Frontiers conference, focusing on energy and climate issues in a thawing High North. See and hear my coverage under articles and radio.  You can also read my series of articles in Popular Science stemming from previous Arctic Frontiers conferences.

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.” 

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.
