Science Journalist & Editor

Storytelling about the complexity of our planet and the people who inhabit it


I am a science journalist and editor currently serving as the managing editor of SAPIENS, an editorially independent online publication devoted to making anthropology accessible and relevant to the general public. Prior to taking on this role in May 2015, I spent a decade as a freelance journalist covering health, neuroscience, energy, the environment and everything in between. My work has appeared in The Washington Post, The New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Nature, Science, New Scientist, Audubon, and many other publications.
