From 2003 until 2021, I created the technological solutions that enabled E&E to produce original and compelling journalism on energy and environment issues to keep top decisionmakers in government, business, NGOs and academia informed and ahead of the curve. Over the years, I crafted resilient systems, innovative internal products, and a lean, remote-first software engineering team while E&E grew to be an absolute juggernaut and the dominant voice in its issue area.
POLITICO acquired E&E News at the very end of 2020. I contributed to what directors and managers there called the smoothest technology transfer of their careers.
I split my time between Hanoi, Vietnam and Vermont.

- Denver Quarterly (forthcoming)

Floating Wolf Quarterly
I designed, developed, edited, and published Floating Wolf Quarterly, an online literary magazine that featured poetry chapbooks in a uniquely readable format suited to electronic devices.
FWQ paired established and emerging writers for each edition. Contributors include recipients of MacArthur, Guggenheim, and Wallace Stegner fellowships. Many of the emerging poets, after appearing in FWQ, have since published their first books.
The magazine was active from 2010 until 2014.
