I am an award-winning freelance journalist who writes about science and the environment. You can see my work in Scientific American, Science, The Wall Street Journal, and The New York Times for Kids, among others.

A story I wrote for Chicago Health magazine, “Food as Medicine,” won a 2023 national communication award given by the National Federation of Press Women, and another, “Finding Refuge,” won an honorable mention. “Black Minds Matter,” an article┬áI wrote for the same magazine, was a finalist for the Chicago Journalists Association’s 2022 Sarah Brown Boyden Awards.

I have a master’s degree from New York University’s Science, Health and Environmental Reporting Program and studied environmental science at Wesleyan University. I live in Chicago with a cloud master and two kids.
