I am a freelance science writer based in California, writing about environmental science, wildlife biology, chemistry, and medicine. I'm especially interested in toxins big and small.

Last year, I completed a part-time internship with Deep Look, a video series produced by KQED Public Media in San Francisco. Prior to that, I was an editorial fellow with the magazine Chemical & Engineering News. I graduated from the Science Communication Program at UC Santa Cruz in 2017.

My scientific background is in environmental toxicology, marine biology, and biochemistry. When I'm not writing or reading, I aim to be outdoors or playing music.
