I also enjoy photography, wine, and cats. Pictured: A cat I photographed at a winery.

I’m currently freelancing and open to new opportunities. During my time at the Daily Dot, I helped develop a brand for the publication’s science coverage. From in-depth medical reporting for professional audiences, to debunking the latest myth about sexuality, to explaining the behavioral phenomena depicted in popular cat videos, I’ve done it all. I’m at my best when science meets culture, be it on the internet or in “Real Life.”

I earned my graduate degree in science communication from the University of California Santa Cruz in 2014. Shortly thereafter, I worked as a staff writer for Multiple Sclerosis Discovery Forum. In addition to staffing at the Daily Dot, I’m the writer behind the “Patients Will Be Asking” column at Univadis.com. My work has appeared on Gizmodo, Scientific American Mind, and Mic.com. I’m based in Oakland, California where I spend my spare time rock climbing.

I have experience in podcasting, photography, videography, and even a little cartooning. I do not have experience designing websites, evidenced by the terrible design of this one.
