Portland, OR USA

Professional Experience

I blog for the uber-popular TreeHugger.com green lifestyle site, as well as occasionally for sister site Planet Green. I also appear on the Huffington Post Big Green and Big Bicycle pages, and freelance for a number of publications. Prime beats: green fashion and sustainable transport (especially urban biking). I'm currently working on a book, Cycle Chic, with Mikael Colville-Andersen. I started in the environmental journalist field at Tomorrow Magazine and then at Sustainable Industries Journal, where I rose to Managing Editor. My first Swedish-to-English book translation - Ulrica Norberg's Hatha Yoga - was released in the U.S. in 2008. CSR copywriting clients include Volvo, IKEA, and Electrolux. I helped IKEA write its sustainability book (for release late 2009). Top skills: Catchy leads, writing for story, deadline juggling, clean copy.
