Before joining the College of Earth, Ocean, and Environment, he worked in development communications for The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, managed websites for a project of the University of Pennsylvania's Annenberg Public Policy Center, and started his career as a newspaper reporter covering topics ranging from the environment to the census.
