I studied geoscience as an undergraduate at Bates College in Lewiston, ME and worked as a lab manager in the Princeton University Earth History Group before realizing Iā€™d rather channel my love of science through my writing than through research. I'm especially driven to share the narratives of people studying, affected by, and finding solutions for environmental change -- but I'm a science nerd through and through, and will write about any number of other things, not excluding why rats are ticklish and the history of sperm science.

I also rock climb, grow food, search for swimming holes, and surf cold winter waves around my home in Portland, Maine.
