I'm based in the San Francisco Bay Area, and cover water and climate resilience for the Bay Area Monitor.

My work has also appeared in Audubon, Bay Nature, bioGraphic, Conservation, San Francisco Estuary News, Frontiers in Ecology and the Environment, High Country News, Muse, Nature, Water Deeply, and others.

Reporting trips have taken me to rice fields that double as salmon nurseries, homeless encampments along creeks, and a Superfund Site on tribal land.

Previous beats include agriculture, chemistry, cancer, conservation biology, and molecular biology.

I love hiking, photography, and visiting our amazing national parks, preserves and seashores (37 so far - above, I am in Canyonlands NP, overlooking the confluence of the Colorado and Green rivers).
