I am a freelance print journalist and host and producer of "How On Earth," a weekly science show on KGNU community radio (Denver/Boulder area).  My work focuses on the environment, science, energy development, agriculture, health and business. My work has been published in Popular Science, Discover, Nature, The New York Times, Ensia and several other publications.

For several years I taught magazine writing and reporting as an adjunct instructor at the University of Colorado, Boulder.

In 2009-2010 I was a Knight Science Journalism Fellow at MIT.  In the 2001-2002 academic year I was a Ted Scripps Fellow in Environmental Journalism at the University of Colorado.

Previously, I worked on staff at Business 2.0 magazine, Internet World, and Reuters news agency (in Tokyo, New York and Silicon Valley).  I hold a master's degree in journalism from Columbia University, a master's degree in Asian Studies from the University of California,  Berkeley, and a BS in political science (with a minor in environmental studies) from UC Santa Cruz.

I live with my husband in Boulder, Colo., where, unlike most Boulderites, I don’t rock climb or run an Iron Man before breakfast (or anytime). Despite not living up to the zeigeist of the town I do love nature, hiking, cycling, backpacking, meditation and yoga.
