I began my
career as a journalist covering agriculture in New Zealand, where
I lived from 1983 until 1991.
back to the U.S., I attended the Columbia University Graduate School
of Journalism, earning a Masters degree in journalism in 1993.
time I freelanced, focusing mainly on agricultural and environmental
issues, for numerous publications including World Watch,
Sierra, On Earth, TomPaine.com, Extra!,
The Nation, In These Times, The Progressive,
various New Zealand publications, and several others.
From the summer
of 2004 until May 2013, I was the managing editor of the journal Capitalism
Nature Socialism, an academic ecosocialist journal published by Routledge.
I am now freelancing again, writing for WhoWhatWhy.com and others.
