The summer before I entered third grade, a family friend gave me a yellow, pocket-sized journal to inspire me to chronicle an upcoming family trip. Apparently I needed little encouragement, because I started writing and never stopped.
Since then, I’ve written for The Nation, The Atlantic, Al Jazeera English, VICE and other publications and reported from the Middle East, Maine, South Carolina and New York. I like complex stories about real people and problems, stories that defy simple explanations for why the world is the way it is. My work focuses on the environment, agriculture and health (which means I also write about inequality and poverty), but I’ve written stories about human rights, history and culture, too.
I am based in New York City and am currently earning my master’s degree in science journalism at Columbia Journalism School. I’m honored to be a 2018 Overseas Press Club Foundation Scholar and a 2017-2018 Taylor/Blakeslee Fellow through the Council for the Advancement of Science Writing.
