I have a unique industry insider's perspective on what it means to be green thanks to my time heading up two of the country’s leading green building initiatives (U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED for Homes and the Southeast’s EarthCraft House program). But my professional background is in journalism, both television and print, where I strive to communicate the benefits of green living and home construction in an accessible and understandable way.

You'll see my writing and photography featured in Delta Sky, GreenBuilder, Smart HomeOwner, LoftLife and Natural Home along with hundreds of other publications, television programs, national conferences, workshops and design charrettes.
