In short, I am Brooklyn-based freelance writer, who explores the unseen, underrepresented, or purposely obfuscated processes that transform our world.
My work has been featured in The New York Times, Wired, Popular Science, Outside, Gastronomica, Orion, Fast Company, Gilt Taste, Publishers Weekly, and The Atlantic. I’ve also worked as a regular contributor for Smithsonian and as an editor at GOOD, Maine magazine and The Christian Science Monitor.
I grew up in the Hudson Valley, where I studied the effects of Ginkgo biloba on my peers and jumped off cliffs into freshwater streams. Since then, I’ve done everything from working on dairy farms in New Zealand to foraging for ulmaria and konbu near Brookings, Oregon. I once traveled the Caribbean on the 150-foot oil refueling vessel between the port of San Juan and Gallow’s Bay, St. Croix. This is my first website.
