Science Writer in New York

View my portfolio

I’m a New York-based science writer. My byline has appeared in The Atlantic, Discovery News, Thought Catalog, Red Fez, The Indypendent, and elsewhere.

In my previous life, I’ve worked as a print reporter in newsrooms from city dailies to community weeklies.

I’ve covered breaking news, cops and courts, schools, town hall politics, business, and everything in between. I’ve headed a 24/7 hyperlocal news website. (If you’d like to leaf through my clips, you can always ask for them.)

Distractions: punctuation, cooking,  Sixties' French pop,  SF, Agatha Christie novels.
