I look forward to working with my fellow expert writers and contributing to Treehugger on a regular basis.


I have 10 years experience in gardening, 5 years working in a greenhouse, and have read widely in environmental history and the energy transition.


I have a Ph.D. in European history from the University of California, Berkeley, with an award-winning book of academic history and many articles and reviews to my name. I have also been an editor and writer at two educational publishers for the past seven years.
