I engineer learning and creativity, entertainingly evidenced.

Let's work together. Evidence shall be our guide. I specialize in on-screen scientific hosting, writing, and consulting.

Nerds are Creatives. I study the scientific evidence that links creativity to science to the humanities and how best to communicate all of it. My research links three disparate fields together, all in the goal of engineering creative communities to showcase their power as a group. Artists, Scientists, and everyone working to make this cosmos more wondrous, we want to learn from you.

Got an idea to help this celestial orb? Let's hear it.

I nerd out in print, online, TV, and live-performances. My work/ideas/nerdery/gingerness has been featured by The Smithsonian, The Washingtonian, American Scientist, Worn, PBS, the National Academy of Sciences, NASA, The American Association for the Advancement of Science, ReBoot America, 1776dc, and others.
