About Me

About Me

I'm a science writer based in Tacoma, WA. I got my start at Discover magazine, where, in addition to writing and editing news and features, I wrote a series about (almost) every species named after David Attenborough.

As a freelancer, I've been lucky enough to write for a number of publications, including Atlas ObscuraHakaiYale Environment360ScienceUndark and more.

I've covered a broad range of topics, but I'm drawn most to stories about the living world, the environment and human origins. I'm also a founding partner at Lunaris Creative, a digital content agency for science brands and organizations.
