|I'm a Bloomberg News energy reporter in Tokyo, where I cover the ongoing Fukushima
crisis, the geopolitics of fuel, Japanese power market reforms and
everything else connected to keeping the lights on here. I've dabbled in
other topics too, including casino gambling and Tokyo's campaign
for the 2020 Olympic games.
Before coming to Tokyo, I covered real estate and urban planning -- with a sideline in agriculture -- for The Associated Press in Los Angeles.
My vocational activities outside journalism have included stuffing sandwiches, tossing pizzas, delivering mysterious boxes to university science labs and standing behind cash registers at branches of book and music chains that don't exist anymore.
I have graduate degrees in journalism and Asian studies from the University of California, Berkeley, and studied German and journalism at University of Massachusetts at Amherst as an undergrad.
I've lived (in some cases, alas, for but a summer) in Tokyo, Seoul, Hong Kong, Berlin, Hamburg, Los Angeles, New York, Washington, the San Francisco East Bay and western Massachusetts. I was born, raised and publicly educated in Philadelphia.
