A long-time energy and environmental policy junkie, I earned my reporting stripes at The Energy Daily in Washington, D.C. I stepped down as the daily's executive editor in 1998 to spend time with my two young kids, and since then have worked as a freelance journalist and consultant.

From my Beltway base, I have covered Congress and the alphabet soup of regulatory bodies and cabinet agencies that oversee the nation's energy industry for years, and I believe that much good gets done here. But I also love to write about R&D and in-field deployment activities, virtually all of which occurs outside the hyper-political D.C. atmosphere.
