My favorite clips are on my home page, but here are a few more of my stories. I've written thousands of stories — yes, thousands — in my 10-year career, so this is just a tiny fraction of my work. I will update this page frequently.

Clark swam upstream in scientific community

Mote Marine Laboratory and Aquarium founder Eugenie “Genie” Clark needed help with the heavy gear when she made her second-to-last dive last year. It was her 92nd birthday, and she was battling lung cancer. She sat in a plastic chair in the waters of the Gulf of Aqaba while fellow divers helped her gear up. After she was underwater, she needed no assistance. “The minute she went into the water, she was as graceful as a ballerina,” said Mote President/CEO Michael Crosby.

Crane Country

Sandhill cranes aren’t afraid to dance like no one is watching. They bop their heads. They do the hop. They move like Jagger. They stretch their wings. They shake their tail feathers. It’s mostly a mating ritual, although they boogie even when breeding season is over. It’s thought to be a way to thwart aggression, relieve tension and strengthen the bond between pairs. Sometimes, it’s accompanied by calls of “KAR-R-R-R-R-R-ROO!”
