About Me Working as a marine biologist for nearly 20 years took me all over the world and emphasized outreach and environmental education. After finishing the UCSC Science Communication program where I interned at deep-sea research institute (MBARI) a newspaper, and an NPR member station, I worked with the National Park service producing short science videos about their conservation work. I continue to freelance and integrate multimedia pieces into my reporting. For the first half of 2014 I will be reporting from the field on Fiji's nearshore fisheries
