I’m a Queens-based writer primarily interested in covering science and data-driven stories, but I’ll write about anything as long as it’s interesting, important, or some combination of the two. It’s a great joy of mine to clearly communicate technical concepts for the layperson.
As a freelance writer, I’ve covered everything from medical science to chemical engineering. As a high school teacher, I spent just over three years in Philadelphia classrooms teaching physics and mathematics with an eye toward deeper-level, conceptual understandings rather than the “plug-and-chug” physics class you may remember from your days in high school.
Besides teaching, I’ve written features on neuro-imaging for scientific magazines, worked with data-scientists to create interactive maps for WHYY Philadelphia, dabbled in investigative reporting for Pittsburgh’s PublicSource, constructed R&D documents for the pharmaceutical writing group Audubon PM Associates, and helped translate academic papers for a team of electrical engineers at the Czech Technical University in Prague.
I truly love making sense of the natural world, and I’ve always seen science and writing to be two separate, but not entirely orthogonal, methods of carefully crafting that sense.
In my spare time, I like writing fiction, reading about complexity theory and the philosophy of science, climbing medium-sized rock walls, and playing Magic: The Gathering.
