Finalist in one of the Veolia Environnement Wildlife Photographer of the Year Award categories. Woo-hoo! OK, the rest is top secret.
Fund raising success for CAT in WATER on Kickstarter! There's still time to pledge though. Help add some sugar to those sparse journalism funds and give a little sugar to the endangered fishing cat. Yes it does like to swim!

Am excited to report that Jaime Rojo and I will be presenting a breakout session on Nature Needs Half (TM) at the 2011 NANPA summit! Also photographer Ethan Welty and I have joined forces to participate in the Boulder leg of the Meet Your Neighbors project led by Clay Bolt and Niall Benvie. Lots of local wildlife photography planned for the next year!
Joined NANPA's Environmental Committee!
Embarking on a new conservation project for the WILD Foundation and Nature Needs Half (TM). I'll be documenting the story of how Boulder County managed to protect 67 percent of its wild places. And what it's dealing with now as they try to manage them.
Launched Eco Leads the story source for conservation photographers, a free monthly newsletter that gives photographers the scoop on fresh science news just begging to become a photography project. Sign up by clicking on Eco Leads at the top of the page.
Am preparing to track the "prairie ghost" this spring, shadowing a mountain plover biologist. Stay tuned for an upcoming story about the vulnerable birds in High Country News and hopefully other outlets too.
New year, new adventures. I've been invited to become a trustee of the Wild Foundation. Should be official come the end of the month.
I also serve on the committee organizing the first Fine Outreach for Science gallery event at the premiere GigaPan conference. If you're a FOFS fellow, start picking out your best science focused GigaPans for submission!
Am busy writing an article for the magazine Subtel Forum on how CIRES scientists can detect a passing open-ocean tsunami by measuring changes in the electrical fields of submarine cables. The discovery may help supplement already in place tsunami warning systems.
Took to the ice to document CIRES researchers as they sample water from Dillon Reservoir, Denver's largest watering hole. We also teamed up with the EPA to gather samples that will be analyzed for pharmaceuticals in the drinking supply. Check out the new gallery in Photo Stories - Science in Action.
AGU conference begins. Planned two CIRES press conferences, and getting ready to learn the news from 16,000 geophysicists.

Prairie dog story up and running on SmithsonianMag.com, photos and text.
Received invite to attend the GigaPan workshop at Carnegie Mellon University this October. I'm going to learn how to make massive panoramic photomosaics using this technology that was partially designed by the university and NASA!
Thank you to the WILD Foundation and WILD9 World Wilderness Congress for the scholarship to attend the conference in November!
Am writing and photographing an article for Smithsonian Magazine online. Stay tuned in September!
I've started work as the science writer and multimedia journalist for CIRES, the Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences. Check out our Web site at http://cires.colorado.edu or follow us on Twitter at theCIRESwire!
Returned from a successful trip shooting aerials of energy development on the Roan Plateau as part of an on-spec effort for National Wildlife Magazine.
Gave in to the Twitter craze. Follow me for science updates and other cool news at NotesfromMo!
Just returned from a wonderful Mom & Daughter road trip through Navajo Country in the southwest. Check out the newly added gallery featuring the trip. I'm just starting to go through the nearly 1,500 photos, so there will be changes and additions as I go along. In the meantime, enjoy. There are new additions in the other galleries as well, including a whole new section dedicated to Holga photos.
Graduation Day! Congrats to all my friends who also graduated today! My we all find jobs worth all the hard work of the past two (or three, c'est moi) years!
Woo-hoo! Graduation is official! I successfully defended my master's project today. Thank you to all my friends who showed up. Your support really helped calm a girl's nerves.
Just received word that I've been accepted into the Emerging League with the International League of Conservation Photographers!!! Thank you to everyone who has helped support me on this road so far.
Paul Moloney wrote this column about my work on the Red Desert in his Wandering Photographer column for the Greely Tribune.
