About me

My storytelling has covered the multimedia spectrum, including radio, television, online video and print. Most recently, as a freelance journalist, I have filed broadcast radio reports for PRI's The World (a co-production between the BBC and WGBH, which is broadcast to all NPR stations in the US). My work as a writer, photographer and video journalist has appeared in The Daily Climate, Huffington Post, Scientific American and PRI.org.  Some of this work has been overseas from countries such as Kenya, England, France and Switzerland.  I have also been a staff reporter for ABC’s KOLO TV, Channel 8 in Reno, Nevada, as well as reported for NPR’s KPCC on the Arab Spring and the Fukushima nuclear disaster as it affected the Los Angeles area.

 I have story-produced network reality television and also directed and produced a feature documentary, The Tomato Effect, about government’s interference vis a vis the chemical industry in setting medical standards. It won the Roy W. Dean $50,000 Film Grant for completion funds, and when finished, screened in theaters across the country and was distributed to Members of Congress for educational purposes.

Welcome to my corner of the world.  I'm a storyteller; a video journalist, radio and TV broadcast reporter, a producer, writer and also photographer.  Every story, long or short, seeks a different medium, which I always try to honor.

 

Curated here is some of the my favorite content, created over the years. You'll see, much of what I research and report about is the environment and climate change.  Likely because, growing up in the foothills of California, my family took frequent trips to Tahoe, the Sierra Nevada wilderness, Yosemite, the Sequoias and many other places that still haunt and color my soul.  I credit my father in particular for teaching me reverence for nature.  His brilliant, scientific observations combined with his quiet love of nature make the outdoors a place where I can forever commune with him since his passing.  And much like my father, I'm convinced that as we destroy nature, we destroy ourselves.  

In many ways, my efforts are to Save The Humans!

"For all the advances in science, we still remain humbly, pitifully dependent upon the forces of nature: air, water, food and sunlight.  In fact, it seems the more advanced our technology becomes, the more capable we are of destroying ourselves."
