He worked for the Sun two austral summer seasons in its previous print incarnation and spent a year at the South Pole (2003-2004) as a carpenter helper. He has been to all three USAP research stations, with more than 24 months of Ice time. Before joining the USAP, he worked more than three years in warmer climes as assistant editor for a newspaper in the Marshall Islands, as well as for daily and weekly papers in Texas for about five years.
