Independent journalist, feature writer, essayist.
I write about transportation, infrastructure, politics, economics and the environment. I am a correspondent for Trains magazine and have written for The Atlantic/CityLab, Sierra magazine, Hakai, and Mongabay.
My writing career began as a business journalist for the WardsAuto group of automotive industry publications, reporting on manufacturers and suppliers, along with consumer, marketing and government issues. My byline has also appeared in Pacific Standard, the San Francisco Chronicle, San Jose Mercury News, Newsday, and Kiplinger's Personal Finance.
I've made radio and speaking appearances and have been profiled in several articles.
My career also includes corporate communications, leading public relations accounts for major international brands, and I co-founded an award-winning Los Angeles-based video production company with brand-name clients.
I am a member of the Society of Professional Journalists (SPJ), the American Society of Journalists and Authors (ASJA) and Investigative Reporters & Editors (IRE).
