About Me

I’m a senior editor/staff reporter at Truthout, and have been covering social and environmental justice issues since 2009.

Before I came to Truthout I was an editor/environmental reporter at Generation Progress, an editorial intern at In These Times magazine and co-host of a Dallas-based progressive talk radio program.

My work has also appeared in several other publications, including The Nation, the Texas Observer, Salon, Rewire.News, Sludge, YES! Magazine and Earth Island Journal.

I’m honored to have received awards from organizations including the San Francisco Press Club, the Fort Worth chapter of Society of Professional Journalists, the Native American Journalists Association, and the Dallas Peace and Justice Center.

I’ve spoken about my work at universities including Yale and the University of North Texas, and at several venues organized and hosted by activist and advocacy organizations. My work has also been used as a teaching tool in several university classrooms.

With my partner, I wrote and produced a feature-length documentary, Don’t Frack With Denton, which chronicles how our hometown became the first city to ban fracking in Texas and its subsequent overturn in the state legislature. We’re now based in Austin.
