As managing editor for BuildingGreen, I run our efforts, through Environmental Building News, to monitor key news and product developments in the green building industry and bring them to you, our readers, in a thorough and engaging way. In the last year I've written feature articles for EBN like "Cradle to Cradle Certification: A Peek Inside MBDC's Black Box," "Historic Preservation and Green Building: A Lasting Relationship," and "Antimicrobial Chemicals in Buildings: Hygiene or Harm?"; investigative news articles like "Appraising Green in Vancouver" and "Enertia Double-Envelope Home Still Has Problems"; as well as perspectives like "When Is it Greener to Build?" My life in green building dates back to a high school reading of "Walden Two," by B.F. Skinner. Never mind the specifics of the book—at the time I found the positive vision for creating vibrant communities to be a revelation. I am fascinated not only by healthy and environmentally sound approaches to construction but also the fostering of healthy communities.
