Based in Dorchester, MA
I'm a freelance science journalist. I was born and raised in Pittsburgh and now live in Boston. A former staff editor at the Atlantic and Mother Jones, I have written for New Scientist, the Boston Globe, and the Washington Post, and many other publications. Mind Over Mind is my first book.
For me, the most interesting stories start with curiosity. Not just the foundational questions about who, what, when, and why, but real, head-scratching curiosity. That's what draws me to science writing. If I've done my job right, the reader feels drawn into the process of exploration and discovery. I like to get readers out of the lab and tell human stories. Science is messy. Sometimes it's frustrating, or contentious, or even funny. It's never dull.
