I am a writer, photographer and producer who has worked across Africa, the Caribbean and the USA. My work has appeared in dozens of publications, including the Christian Science Monitor, the Washington Post, USA Today, Smithsonian Magazine, Boston Globe, and Africa Geographic.
I am the author of White Man's Game: Saving Animals, Rebuilding Eden, And Other Myths of Conservation in Africa. I write cover stories for the Christian Science Monitor magazine (you can find a list of my recent stories here) and launched the popular Modern Parenthood blog on CSMonitor.com. I teach the Sharp Journalism Seminar at the College of William & Mary, a project with the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting.
Other bio tidbits: I am a TEDx speaker (see my talk on moving beyond the journalistic fear narrative here), a former staff reporter at The Baltimore Sun, and a former Alicia Patterson journalism fellow. I live in Western Massachusetts with my husband and two young daughters, as well as a collection of Labrador Retrievers, chickens, and a cat named Kipling.
