About Me


I’m a freelance science journalist and fact-checker. Most often, I’m writing about climate change (and what we can do about it), wildlife and conservation, earth science, and health.┬áBefore launching my writing career, I studied environmental history and global health at Middlebury College and received a master’s in journalism from NYU’s Science, Health, and Environmental Reporting Program.

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, crazy and wacky world.
