About Me

I'm an award-winning radio and online journalist, and spent the last half of my career covering transportation issues in San Francisco.


I’m currently a part-time news anchor at KCBS Radio in San Francisco.


I previously led a cooperative staffing agency in San Francisco, after a 3-and-a-half year stint in local government working with elected officials.


I've also been a bicycle courier in the gig economy, which led me to recommend commissioning a groundbreaking survey of gig workers while working in government.


Media Career

  • I recently returned to KCBS Radio as a part-time night news anchor. From 2000-2008, I was an anchor, editor and producer there.
  • In 2017, I founded Human Streets, a non-profit advocacy journalism organization devoted to coverage of safe streets issues.
  • From 2013-2017, I was a reporter covering transportation issues at KQED Public Radio.
  • I launched Streetsblog San Francisco in 2008, building it into a nationally-recognized transportation blog known for in-depth reporting of safe streets issues.
  • I’ve done news at radio stations in Sacramento (KFBK), Redding and Barstow, California.


Awards I'm most proud of

  • 2015 "Investigative Reporter of the Year" by the San Francisco Trial Lawyers Association for coverage of the fumbled police investigation into a fatal bicycle crash.
  • Led a team of reporters who garnered a Golden Wheel Award from the SF Bike Coalition for “intelligent journalism that helped people understand the connection between bicycling, great streets and a livable city.”
  • "California Journalism Award" recipient from the California State University, Sacramento, for coverage of Proposition 209, the anti-affirmative action measure.
  • "Favorite Radio Personality" by the Sacramento Lambda Gay and Lesbian Center for coverage of the 1993 Lesbian, Gay and Bi Equal Rights March on Washington.
