Introduction
Based in San Francisco, I often write about ideas and startups born (or at least raised) in Silicon Valley and the Bay Area. As a reporter on assignment for publications including National Geographic Digital MediaDiscover MagazineThe New York Times, and Wired Magazine, I’ve covered crowd-funded jellyfish tanks, tenacious electric car startups, nuclear power plant safety, energy storage breakthroughs, giant invasive bullfrogs, climate and energy policy, shared mobility services (where collaborative consumption meets transportation), and much more.
