Hi there — I'm glad you found me.
I escaped from the lab in 2000, leaving behind a career in scientific research to become a science and nature writer for children and teens. In my work, I get to meet dedicated scientists and citizen-scientists — in person and through my research — and write about fascinating topics like brainy pigs and polar bears and plants that bite back.
