About Me

I grew up in the Bay Area during the drought, which encouraged me to move to Oregon for the rain (and college). I'm letting nature take me to where it needs its stories told. It's fed and clothed me, now it's time for me to give back.

Science is extremely interesting. Environmentally conscious living is essential. Journalism is powerful. I hope to inspire people to think critically through science stories and impact the world beneficially -- or at least minimally.

Society needs to understand science, so I want to make it easy for people to understand scientific topics by bridging the gap between the scientific community and the general public.

I am continuously exploring the best ways to engage people in scientific and environmental conversations, but I specialize in writing and audio storytelling.

...oh and I'm completely obsessed with jellyfish.
