I am a science journalist covering health, biomedicine, neuroscience, wildlife, climate change and LGBTQ+ communities. With a B.A. in neuroscience from Hamilton College and an M.S. in Science Communication from UC, Santa Cruz, I enjoy making science accessible and engaging for scientists and non-scientists alike.

My work includes everything from breaking news to longer features and has appeared in High Country News, Huffington Post, ScienceSmithsonian, WIRED and more. You can view all of my work at https://muckrack.com/profile/bio.

Before becoming a journalist, I worked as a research assistant at Boston Children’s Hospital where I managed clinical trials on migraines and the nasty headaches that appear after a concussion. I quickly realized that, although I love the brain, I enjoy talking about it far more than studying it.

Originally from New England – and always a New Englander at heart – I now live in Gunnison, Colorado with my wife, two dogs, two cats and countless plants. I spend my free time hiking, trail running and trying really hard to enjoy locally brewed beer.
