|I'm a Tokyo-based journalist, where I've covered the ongoing Fukushima crisis, the geopolitics of fuel, Japanese power market reforms and other energy-related topics for Bloomberg News. I've dabbled in
other areas 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.
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 Tokyo, Seoul, Hong Kong, Berlin, Hamburg, Los Angeles, New York, Washington, the San Francisco East Bay and western Massachusetts. I was born and raised in Philadelphia.
