Hey there! I am a freelance science writer working out of Athens, Georgia. I write about complicated concepts for a general audience. When someone reads something I wrote, I want them to think about it all day, tell somebody about it over lunch, take time to find out more. I spend a lot of time thinking about how to explain something to my mom.
My writing voice is animated and even funny, but not at the expense of the content. I have plenty of experience pitching stories, working on tight deadlines, and turning an assignment around quickly. Writing can be solitary, and I'm a talker, so my favorite research method is picking up the phone and calling an expert. I am not a shy person.
Freelance writing isn't always easy, but I do it because I like waking up in the morning and learning something new. I am a dream to work with: I'm flexible and a good communicator, and I feel comfortable explaining subjects ranging from fracking to quantum mechanics to Egyptology.
Most of my professional experience has been in writing scripts for educational videos, but in the past year I have branched out to print journalism. Here are a few of my clients and some examples of my work:
