SCIENCE WRITER & MULTIMEDIA PRO
I'm a science writer and multimedia wiz working to make complex information accessible to everyone through storytelling and creative media.
Everything I do is focused on building a more equitable world in which everyone can thrive, and I’ve been called a “Swiss Army knife” for my versatile skillset and adaptability.
