I write and produce videos, podcasts, and multimedia stories for Nebraska Public Media, the state's PBS & NPR station. I also freelance, producing work for All Things Considered, Latino USA, the Food and Environment Reporting Network, and numerous print magazines.

For Nebraska Public Media, I am currently producing a podcast about skateboarding culture in the Midwest. Previously, I have written and produced a PBS Digital 360° video series about the Platte Basin Watershed, a short film about the history and current state of conservation of the American bison, and a podcast about the Farm Bill, co-sponsored by Harvest Public Media and FERN.

My photographs have appeared in Bloomberg Businessweek, The Guardian, Harper’s, Huffington Post, In These Times, Maclean’s, Mother Jones, The Nation, The New Republic, and OnEarth

My book, Nature’s Mirror: How Taxidermists Shaped America's Natural History Museums and Saved Endangered Species, was published by the University of Chicago Press in December 2020.
