About Me

Writer, editor, community guy, but first of all father and husband.

I’ve been a climate and energy reporter at Grist.org, Pacific Northwest correspondent at Sustainable Industries magazine, a freelance business and arts writer for a bunch of places, and a small-town reporter for the Brown County (Indiana) Democrat.

More professional info on my resume.

Chicago native, Seattleite for 10 years, recently landed (2019) in beautiful Grand Rapids, Michigan.

Take a look at my published work for a sense of my obsessions and interests.

Books? Why, yes, I love to talk books.
