I'm a science journalist and fact-checker based in Portland, Oregon, reporting on healthcare, ecology and social justice. My work highlights the intersection between the human experience and science — whether that's wildfire, chronic pain, or houselessness. Whenever possible, I amplify stories rooted in the Pacific Northwest. 

You can also find my work in Sierra Magazine, where I'm an editorial fellow, as well as the New York Times, Slate, Hakai MagazinePopular Science and more.

When I'm not writing, you can find me line dancing in my cowboy boots or lacing up my cleats on the soccer field.
