I’m a freelance science/health/environment journalist in Washington, D.C. who speaks Spanish conversationally. I love long walks in the rainforest, 9-hour bus rides and high-altitude hikes.
Formerly a senior editor at Everyday Health, I’ve also reported for The New York Times, NPR, Reuters, National Geographic, Nature, Nature Medicine, Al Jazeera America, Outside Magazine, The Atlantic, WHYY radio, WESA radio, Deutsche Welle, Christian Science Monitor, Earth & Space Science News (EOS), Healthline, DEMAND-ASME Global Development Review, Stanford Business Insights, Smithsonian Magazine, Science Magazine, Scientific American, etc.
I have a master’s degree from the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism with concentrations in photo documentary, science journalism and radio reporting. As an undergrad, I studied environmental health at UC Berkeley and the University of Oxford, UK.
In 2019, I accomplished my life goal of reporting from all seven continents.
