Hello! If you're here, you're probably looking for details, so here you go: I'm a reporter at HuffPost. I write about climate change, the environment and polluters.
I have reported on warming temperatures from remote corners of Greenland, the collapse of Iceland's government from Reykjavík, and the gas industry's grip on state politics from Pittsburgh. I have exposed shady dealings at the Trump EPA and a top climate change denial group's efforts to protect an former executive accused of stalking a female colleague. I have written about antitrust issues, chemical plant deregulation, and the cost of giving monopolies on taxpayer-researched drugs to private companies.
Previously, I covered retail and world affairs at the International Business Times. Before that, I reported on the media industry in Los Angeles for The Wrap and, later, in New York at FishbowlNY. I got my first real gig writing about crime, fires and the occasional citywide spelling bee for The Boston Globe.
My journalism career started at 15 years old with an internship at The Long-Islander, a weekly newspaper founded by Walt Whitman in 1838 in Huntington, New York. Back then, I started using my middle initial in my byline to pay respects to old newspaper tradition. Admittedly, I often worry it now makes me seem pretentious. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
At Emerson College, I served as editor-in-chief of The Berkeley Beacon, the only student-run newspaper on campus. During my tenure, we became the first student publication in the country to launch a responsively designed website, earning us plaudits from Harvard's Nieman Lab.
I live in Astoria, Queens, with my girlfriend, a cat named Ashitaka, and a jungle of plants.
