Freelance journalist, editor

I’m a veteran freelancer focusing on public policy, design, technology, business, environmental issues and general interest topics. My work has appeared in The Economist, The New York Times, Wired Magazine, Metropolis, The Financial Times, FastCompany, NationalGeographic.com, The Toronto Globe and Mail, Grist Magazine, Architectural Record, The Architect's Newspaper, Red Herring, ComputerWorld, Boston Magazine, CIO, and other publications. I also write case studies for Columbia University.

In 28 years as a journalist I've worked as a writer and assignment editor. I’ve written and edited a wide range of story types, from wire service and daily Web coverage to features. I’ve received publishing industry awards for feature writing and special reports.

I’ve managed reporters and handled layout and production for print and Web publications. I’ve also organized discussion panels and conference presentations. 

As a senior editor for computer industry publications in the 1990s, I covered information technology and the Internet. As a contributing editor for Technology Research News, I covered advanced research at university, government and corporate labs.

Since 2000 I’ve written on such topics as sprawl, bird-safe design, brownfields redevelopment, emissions credits, preservation of antiquities, sustainable preservation, and economic metrics.
