As a journalist by training, I am very drawn to stories and their power as a means of communication. I is my goal to combine science, complicated social issues, and storytelling in a way that is compelling to a popular audience. With each story, I love that I get to jump into a topic mostly foreign to me and not only come out of it more enriched, but to share that enrichment with others. Great journalism changed the way I think, learn, and view the world around me. I hope that I can be that same agent of change for others.
