I’m a science and environmental writer and photographer, with a special interest in aquatic ecosystems and the critters that inhabit them. I have a Master of Environmental Science degree from the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies, and I recently finished assisting writer Richard Conniff on a book about the history of the Yale Peabody Museum of Natural History (coming Spring 2016). You can find links to some of my writing on my (you guessed it) Writing page.
