About Me

I’m a full-time writer, a regular contributor to the online edition of the NY Times and the Guardian, a some-time researcher, a dedicated hiker and steadfast nature lover, and recently converted Manchester United fan, thanks to my wife’s passion for English football (“proper football” as she calls it.)

I grew up in New York, settled for a spell in the Pacific Northwest, but now live in Silicon Valley, just south of San Francisco. I spend most days examining the latest trends in clean technologies, alternative energy solutions, green business practices, and next-gen transportation systems.

I’ve spent way too much time in college, first at American University where I received a BA in English, next at George Mason University to get an MA from the excellent Professional Writing program there, and finally (I promise) the Presidio Graduate School in San Francisco for an MBA in Sustainable Management.

You can keep tabs on me at my website or by the occasional tweet, and often find me hammering away on my computer at one of the many coffee shops in Palo Alto.
