I’m a science writer based in Washington, DC. I specialize in making complex ideas easy to understand. I like to tell stories about biology, psychology, and life in general. 

I completed my M.S. in Biology at Washington State University and B.S. in Psychology at George Mason University. Prior to becoming a writer, I spent many years as a researcher in both biology and psychology labs.

When I’m not writing, I love to travel and take photos. I’m always looking to try new things. Curiosity drives everything I do.
