Profile Summary

I am a generalist writer who has worked on a very wide array of subjects, from dense scientific materials to entertainment to white papers. I am a skilled researcher and am comfortable exploring new and different material.

Experience / Education / Qualifications

I am currently freelancing after an 8-year stint with Encyclopedia Britannica. At Britannica, I was tasked with a wide range of responsibilities, from running their homepage material and creating and editing content for their blog to writing articles and fact-checking pieces from contributors, including prominent figures such as Carl Sagan and Michael Mann. I have investigated and written about everything from the Deepwater Horizon spill (my article on the subject has been cited in several publications) to Vlad the Impaler.

My experience at Britannica and my reading elsewhere have equipped me with an extremely flexible generalist skill set that allows me to comfortably write and edit materials from a wide range of disciplines. I am particularly strong on science, history, and literature.
