Bio

Hello! I am the author of Green Illusions: The Dirty Secrets of Clean Energy and the Future of Environmentalism and a visiting scholar at the University of California, Berkeley. I also write for a variety of publications, and appear from time to time in the media and on college campuses to speak about energy and environmentalism.

I attended Kettering University (BS – Engineering) and The University of Amsterdam (MS/Drs – Science and Technology Studies).  I live in San Francisco. See my official bio at the Green Illusions website.

The boring stuff: I primarily research the social, cultural, political and economic conditions influencing energy policy priorities and project outcomes.  My work also incorporates symbolic roles that energy technologies play within political and environmental movements.  I’m also working on investigative research for a project that considers contextualized notions of power relations through expanded consideration of forgeries throughout a variety of contexts including counterfeiting operations, pornography, sex work, digital media distribution, cosmopolitanism, gender, and other realms.
