I’m a writer and editor with nearly a decade of experience working in London, New York, and Washington, DC. Currently I am a senior editor at TIME with the climate and science team.
I’ve been published in The New York Times, National Geographic, HuffPost, The Guardian, and Mother Jones, among other outlets, writing about everything from how climate scientists shop for groceries and the impact of renewables on desert wildlife to Venezuela’s last glacier and climate refugees. I have been invited to discuss my work in the media and on conference panels, including the 2019 Society of Environmental Journalists’ annual conference.
Previous roles include leading content strategy and collaboration among 22 local news outlets for Local Media Association’s Covering Climate Collaboration, editing HuffPost’s enterprise ‘This New World’ series, where I commissioned freelancers and wrote solutions-focused features. Prior to that, I was the climate editor at ThinkProgress, where I had the joy of training a reporter new to their beat and coordinating coverage on everything from hurricanes to elections.
I also have a record of impactful political and investigative stories, including obtaining archival footage of a Mobil Oil CEO discussing climate change. Using FOIA requests, I revealed new details about President Trump’s NOAA nominee Barry Myers, and the sexual harassment allegations that occurred at his company AccuWeather. This was followed by mounting calls from several watchdog organizations for senators to drop the pending nomination and in November 2019 he withdrew his nomination.
I completed my Masters degree at Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism in 2017, where I specialized in longform narrative non-fiction writing and science reporting. During this time I investigated the cost of climate displacement in America. Traveling to the bayou of Louisiana, I used narrative storytelling techniques to explore the challenge of protecting a country’s citizens from sea level rise and coastal erosion. This story was published by Mother Jones.
Before moving to the U.S., I worked in London as editor for the independent climate news outlet DeSmog. I reported from the historic UN COP21 climate negotiations in Paris and broke numerous stories on energy and climate policy, including exposing Exxon’s lobbying against electric vehicles. Under my leadership, the website became a go-to source for investigative climate news in Britain. Originally from Montreal, Canada, I got my start in journalism writing and editing for my alma mater’s student newspaper The McGill Tribune.
