NOTE (5 June 2013):  I was in Asheville, NC for a few reasons.  Prior to and during the week, I was consulting and working on strategic media with Global Justice Ecology Project and the Campaign to STOP Genetically Engineered (GE) Trees in the on-going international effort to stop genetically engineered trees.  I was also on assignment as a photojournalist for Z Magazine and I want to thank B. Jesse Clark from Race, Poverty and the Environment for press credentials.
