Taking photos is part of how I report and tell stories. I’ve published dozens of slideshows on energy and technology, built around my own and third-party photos. I’ve also edited videos and provided on-screen commentary on energy technologies.

I’ve been a multimedia reporter for years and made numerous on-camera and radio appearances to comment on green technologies. While at CBS Interactive/CNET, I published a weekly “Green Minute” radio spot for two years. Here’s a sampling of some video work.
