About Me

Growing up, I spent many a weekend hunting for seashell fossils in the Texas Hill Country, drawing birds from a field guide and memorizing dinosaur facts. Now, I do the grown-up version of that, looking for interesting science stories to help people understand our complex, fascinating and sometimes downright wacky world.

At Middlebury College, I studied environmental history and global health. I also focused on Spanish language and history during a semester abroad in Madrid, Spain. I worked on large events and wrote about fishing trends before earning my masters degree at the Science, Health, and Environmental Reporting Program at NYU.

In my career so far, I’ve written about climate change, weird animals, face transplants, and birds galore for publications like Audubon Magazine and Popular Science. When looking for stories, I tend to nerd out about earth sciences, environmental history, global health, and weird stuff that happens in space. I’m excited to tell these stories on multiple platforms – whether it’s video, audio, infographics or something that hasn’t been invented yet.

When I’m not writing about science, you can generally find me reading fiction, watching the latest Marvel mega-movie, waterskiing, or eating tacos.
