First Person

I have worked as a writer and editor on several newspapers in my journalism career. As an environmental reporter for the Albany Times Union, I wrote many stories about the Adirondacks in the early 1990s--among them the political battles waged over the the ill-fated Commission on the Adirondacks in the 21st Century. In 1998, I went to the Chicago Sun-Times, but after discovering that the Windy City has no mountains, I moved to Saranac Lake to take a job at the Adirondack Explorer, a startup monthly newspaper with an emphasis on environmental issues. As editor of the Explorer, I am able to pursue my interests in the outdoors. I continue to hike, bike, canoe and ski whenever I can. I have been to the top of more than 100 mountains in the Adirondacks.
