Evidence of expertise: I have a B.A. in philosophy and video journalism from GWU and a decade of shooting, editing, interviewing and performing experience. I'm also a working stand-up comedian, improviser, and writer.
What you do at Planet Forward: I co-taught a class on sustainable reporting and produced a series of video storytelling tutorials for YouTube. I currently write, perform, and edit Planet Forward's humor-filled Web series, "Green Screen." I also manage video interns and oversee digital media submissions to the website.
What your friends think you do at Planet Forward: I have a strict separation between business and pleasure, so my friends have no idea what I do for a living.
Why we must care about the environment (in 10 words or less): We are the environment.
If you win the lottery, you will: Live simply and comfortably while financing my weird ideas, hiring a bunch of creative geniuses, and siring three children with large heads who won't see a cent of my inheritance. Whatever's left goes to prison reform groups and groups that are connecting people to the internet.
