What a time to be alive! Brunch, evolution, ancient civilizations, space, Kate Bush videos on YouTube just whenever you fancy.  And did you hear they just observed quantum tunneling in water molecules in a beryl crystal? Also, Queen Nefertiti may or may not be buried behind King Tut's tomb. It's almost to much too be borne.

I live in Athens, Georgia where I write, spend a lot of time with friends and family (husband, seven-year-old daughter, and 97-year-old grandmother) and run a small nonprofit wilderness school out of my house. 

I got a creative writing degree from Prescott College in 2000 and an M.S. in Creative Nonfiction from the Environmental Studies program at the University of Montana in 2006. While working for an environmental nonprofit for nine years, I decided to get back into writing, so I went to half time at my nonprofit job and started writing for a start-up YouTube program called SciShow. Now I write full time.

I've mostly written for educational video production, though I have recently segued into print. I've worked for museums and environmental nonprofits, and have even ghost written a book about animal reproduction. 

You probably wouldn't like somebody who talks more than me, but you'd probably like me. I love the ocean, summertime, painting watercolors, yard gymnastics, camping, and nothing makes me happier than waking up in the morning, making a cup of coffee and figuring out how to explain gravitation in under 600 words.

At this point in my career, I've written about just about every area of the sciences from oxidation to income inequality in the public school system.
