I am a freelance writer based in Columbia, Missouri. I cover the environment, evolution, energy, agriculture, food, language, books and film. I also frequently write outside these topics on everything from the electricity grid to domesticating foxes to biomedical research in outer space. I have a Master’s in Science Writing from the Johns Hopkins University.
Recently, I’ve been experimenting with blogging about “small nature” in mostly urban settings at Everyday Nature.
My first book came out in 2011. Rambunctious Garden is an important read for anyone who cares about the environment. As humans change every centimeter of Earth, from what species live where to its very climate, our strategies for saving nature must change. My book explains why, and more importantly, how. And it is fun as well! Dutch safaris with Nazi-bred cattle, treks deep into the totally non-native, totally wild jungles of Hawaii, close encounters with European bison, a kayak tour through the hidden river at the heart of Seattle–it is an adventure across our strange, beautiful and totally humanized planet.
