I communicate research, projects, concepts and events related to climate science, the environment and development. Have some science that needs communicating? I'm available for freelance work -- email me using the form at left if you're interested in collaborating.

I love school. I've learned the most during field education experiences in Montana and the equatorial Pacific in which I was forced to solve problems...sans internet!

Assisting scientists taught me the research process. I also gained a first-hand understanding of the importance of precision when reporting on science. Serving as a teaching assistant has been one of my favorite jobs to date, and I hope to be able to return to teaching in my career.
