I'm an experienced and tech-savvy energy journalist and blogger living in Massachusetts and working with clients nationwide; my name is Kat Friedrich. Currently, I work for a university-sponsored news publication and an energy efficiency company. I also freelance for online news publications.
After working as an engineer for four years, I completed a graduate degree that focused on journalism and energy resources. This career change led to a series of exciting writing projects related to clean energy, brownfield restoration, and diversity-friendly science education. I also helped to lead the redesign of a major energy efficiency website.
Readers have responded very positively to some of my work. The newsletter I produce for Yale's Center for Business and the Environment has consistently high click-through rates. A survey revealed a large fraction of our readers are taking actions because of the newsletter. A technical book proposal I prepared was accepted by MIT Press. My blog was featured in the Freshly Pressed section of WordPress. My Green Communication Guide will be used as material for two university seminars on sustainability in 2013 and 2014. And Environmental News Network distributed an article I wrote about clean energy in Texas to a wide audience last year.
I've also written a thesis and reports exploring environmental communication practices. You can find free tips about this topic in my Green Communication Guide.
