I’m a freelance science/health/environment journalist in Washington, D.C. who speaks Spanish conversationally. I love long walks in the rainforest, 9-hour bus rides and high-altitude hikes.
Formerly a senior editor at Everyday Health, I’ve also reported for The New York Times, NPR, Reuters, National Geographic, Nature, Al Jazeera America, Outside Magazine, The Atlantic, WHYY radio, Christian Science Monitor, Earth & Space Science News (EOS), Stanford Business Insights, Smithsonian Magazine, Science Magazine, Scientific American, etc. I teach freelancing 101 classes in D.C. and Northern Virginia.
I have a master’s degree from the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism with concentrations in photo documentary, science journalism and radio reporting. As an undergrad, I studied environmental health at UC Berkeley and the University of Oxford, UK.
This year I accomplished my life goal of reporting from all seven continents.
