I'm a writer and naturalist based in Philadelphia, PA.

By day, I run the Ocean Portal at the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History. By night, I blog at A More Human Nature and write freelance articles for publications including Scientific American, The Scientist, Bitch Magazine, Smithsonian.com, PopularScience.com, Refinery 29 and Nature Medicine. I also have been known to tweet.
