I’m a Washington  D.C.-based writer and editor covering neuroscience and other biomedical research for Science Magazine.

I studied cognitive science and comparative literature at the University of Georgia before setting out in search of the vague job description “learn and explain things.” I worked on the Appalachian trail and on a family farm in Maine, and led educational hikes through the Blue Ridge mountains in Virginia. Then the Science Communication program at the University of California, Santa Cruz introduced me to the ultimate learn-and-explain-things job. Some of my first projects were published on Wired, Scientific American, KUSP radio and others.


Here you’ll mostly find my work for Science, where I’ve been on staff since 2014, and links to other creative work.
