Howdy. Thanks for stopping by. I’m a park ranger turned journalist. After retiring my Smokey Bear hat, I now report on climate and the environment at Mashable, and write about music, too.

I like reporting. I’ve descended 2,500 feet beneath the sea in a (yellow) submersible, trekked through land transformed into a moonscape by wildfire, journeyed to the Mars lab at the once-secretive Los Alamos National Laboratory, and explored a California town that has fortified itself against today’s megafires.
