Recipient, Jesse H. Neal National Business Journalism Award, American Business Press Association, as a writer and producer at Macworld Online.
Following up on a tip from the Los Angeles Times, I confirmed the political aspirations of a San Francisco Bay Area cult, stories that were included in the investigative package that won a Pulitzer Prize for the Point Reyes Light newspaper.
Newspaper Journalist, Magazine Writer
A professional writer, I began my career as a newspaper journalist, working primarily at the San Francisco Chronicle. As a reporter and feature writer, my work covered the spectrum — news to lifestyles.
From newspapers I moved to electronic publishing, beginning as a writer and producer at Macworld Online. From there I focused on Internet and wireless business and tech writing. As a corporate journalist, I covered computer and semiconductor technologies for Silicon Valley giants Hewlett Packard and Applied Materials.
Beginning in 2006, I began writing about climate change, as founder of a news and lifestyle magazine specific to climate and the environment and also as a contributing editor at the Climate Change Business Journal, where I wrote news and analyses of industry, technology and regulatory policies.
A longtime freelance writer, most recently I've contributed stories about musicians and regional music culture for national magazines, Acoustic Guitar and Classical Guitar.
