Grassroots Connection -- 1997-present
Through my consulting business, I have worked on
searches for environmental
groups, as well as doing some technical writing for EPA
and other entities. Top current projects include Violation Tracker and the Toxic 100.
Hampshire Research -- 2002-2010
As a part-time researcher and database programmer for this group,
I wrote data processing programs for EPA's TRI National Analysis and
created a site for the CEC that provided public
access to combined Canadian, U.S., and Mexican pollution data.
National Environmental Trust -- 1997-2002
I was a half-time researcher for this Washington D.C.-based environmental group.
RTK NET -- 1991-1997
Worked on RTK NET (the Right-To-Know
Network) as a database application developer,
doing everything from initial database design to programming the final public
interface for Web tools. I also wrote policy papers on EPA regulatory issues,
trained users, and analyzed data for searches and reports.
Particular specialties are EPA toxic pollution, hazardous waste, and chemical
accidents databases, EPA and DOE databases related to power generation and
greenhouse gasses, and U.S. Federal databases of contracts and grants. A
list of databases I've worked on is available.
