About Me I'm a San Francisco Bay Area-based independent journalist specializing in clean energy solutions. My work has appeared at Yale Environment 360, the Guardian, Guardian Sustainable Business, Forbes, MotherJones.com, Smithsonian, Ensia, the Christian Science Monitor, Chinadialogue, and GreenBiz.com, among others. In February 2013, I published the "Transportation" chapter in "Guide to Sustainia: Exploring the Sustainable Society of Tomorrow," published by Monday Morning (Denmark). From October 2008 to December 2009, I served as the Lead Writer and Web Editor for the Copenhagen Climate Council, based in Copenhagen, Denmark. There, I also contributed to Monday Morning, the Danish weekly news magazine. I also contributed three chapters to "Heroes of the Green Age," an anthology published in December 2009 by Monday Morning (Egmont/Lindhardt & Ringhof). In 2009, I reported from the International Scientific Congress on Climate Change, in Copenhagen, in March; the UNFCCC climate change talks in Bonn, Germany, in April; the World Climate Conference-3, in Geneva, Switzerland, in September; and COP15, in Copenhagen, in December. Previously, I served three years as Editor-in-Chief for Flex Your Power, California’s statewide climate change and energy efficiency education campaign, based in San Francisco. There, I edited and was chief writer for a blog, e-mail newsletter, policy papers, and best practices guides. Before this, I served as an editor for the magazine of The Commonwealth Club of California, a public affairs forum based in San Francisco. My journalism career started with an editorial fellowship with Mother Jones, the San Francisco-based award-winning investigative journalism magazine.
