I'm the founder of Grist, a source of intelligent, irreverent environmental news and commentary covering climate, energy, food, cities, politics, business, green living, and the occasional adorable baby animal.
I've been honored with a Heinz Award for media innovations and for making environmental issues relevant to new and broad audiences; and I've also been named a TIME magazine “Hero of the Environment.” Before launching Grist, I was editor of Greenwire, the first environmental news daily.
I'm a native of Massachusetts, graduated from Brown University with an honors degree in environmental studies. I'm a lifelong Red Sox fan, weirdly obsessive about media, grammar, politics, and all things green/sustainable. Plus, I like to cook veggies.
