About Me

I’ve been a working journalist for 15 years. I’ve written technology, health and conservation pieces for outfits like The New York Post, WebMD and Columbia University’s Center for Environmental Research and Conservation. I’ve been a stringer for The New York Times’ Metro desk and a foreign correspondent for Japan’s Kyodo Wire News’ service. Today, I’m mainly interested in wildlife and environmental issues, and in writing feature length magazine and web articles.

Currently, I’m reporting on de-extinction- the possibility of cloning extinct animals and restoring them to their original habitats. Did you know that the death of the last passenger pigeon saved the American buffalo? Keep posted, and in late August you’ll be amazed to learn how one event saved this iconic species and shaped our American consciousness.
