About me

I have more than 35 years of experience in journalism and multimedia communications.

I’ve written about science, politics, land use, farming, conservation and resource management, Native Hawaiian issues, health, natural disasters, everyday people, and travel, among many other topics. Reporting assignments have taken me to India, Africa, South Korea, the Western Pacific, the South Pacific, and various locales within the US, including nearly three decades as a staff writer and freelancer in Hawaii.

As a Visiting Fellow and managing editor at the Cornell Alliance for Science, I’m currently creating multimedia materials about public sector crop biotechnology, international agriculture, food security, sustainability and social justice issues, and the dynamics of anti-GMO activism.

My professional services include writing, reporting, interviewing, editing, scripting, video production, communications strategy, blog and website content development, and multimedia asset planning and management.
