This blog is my shingle on the web, my platform to think out loud on topics that interest me, such as archaeology, climate change, ecology, and journalism.

I’m a freelance journalist. My stories have appeared in a range of publications, from Science to Smithsonian. Since 2004, I’ve been an adjunct professor of journalism at New York University.

From 2000 to 2008, I was an editor at Audubon Magazine. During the 2008-2009 academic year, I was a Fellow at the University of Colorado’s Center for Environmental Journalism, in Boulder. There, I studied the connection between drought and the collapse of prehistoric cultures in the American Southwest.

Some of my articles can be viewed here. I’m in the process of creating a page that contains links to all my stories (by category). I can be reached at: [email protected]
