I'm a Bay Area-based science writer, medical writer, and editor.

I write research spotlights for Eos and press releases for PLOS journals. I'm an editor and writer at PLOS Research News, a fact checker for Discover and Science News, and I write and edit for Cancer Commons, a nonprofit that works with cancer patients. I've also written for Popular ScienceDiscover, the Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole, and the European Molecular Biology Laboratory in Germany.

I serve on the board of the Northern California Science Writers Association as co-chair of the Professional Development Committee. In my spare time, I make music.
