I’m a California-based communications professional, editor and writer specializing in science, the environment, oceans and food. I currently publicize research and handle a wide range of internal and external communications for UC Irvine’s School of Social Ecology. I’m also a contributing editor at the trade publication SeafoodSource.
My communications foundation was formed as freelance journalist and newspaper reporter. As The Orange County Register’s environment and science reporter, I tackled local, state and regional stories about natural resources, drought, oceans, energy, water, ecosystems and wildlife.
Before moving to California, I worked for a pair of newspapers in North Dakota and South Dakota, covering everything from city hall to the oil boom.
I graduated from the Honors Program at Emerson College in Boston with a degree in Writing, Literature and Publishing, and a minor in Journalism.
Originally from Denver, Colo., I have a deep affinity for the mountains and all things wild and untamed.
