I studied geology as an undergraduate and worked as a lab manager at Princeton University before realizing my love of science was better channeled through my writing than my lab work. 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 including 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. I live in Portland, Maine.
