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 not to merely engage readers’ intellect, but to 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, Defenders, Northern Woodlands, OnEarth, E, 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 contributed several essays to the book The Outside Story: Local writers explore the nature of New Hampshire and Vermont. 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.
