I’m a word wrangler. A science journalist. A video producer. A project manager. A right-hand person. I research, report, write. I finagle, finesse, and generally just get things done. In short, I’m a freelance magician.
I cover health care, mental health, and vaccine science for Accolade, a health care advocacy company. As a contract freelancer, I write blogs, produce video series, and bring their brand to life in animated videos. I also handle immediate turn-around projects such as presentation proposals.
I was a regular contributor to cannabis magazine Leafly, where I broke down the abuse of the “in plain smell” excuse cops use to search vehicles. I answered the essential question of indoor vs. outdoor grow science, dissected dubious studies, explained rare cannabinoid fermentation, and got a shout out from Cypress Hill for my psilocybin article.
Before that I was the video editor at technology magazine IEEE Spectrum for six years, amassing a tensome of awards for my multimedia and social media work.
And before that I earned my Master’s in Journalism from the Craig Newmark Graduate School of Journalism at CUNY, with a focus on science journalism and a specialty in multimedia.
