About

I am a freelance science writer interested in stories about the environment, outdoors, people and places in the Great Basin and Sierra Nevada.

I am a 2015 graduate of the master’s program at the Reynolds School of Journalism at the University of Nevada, Reno, a part-time writer for UNR’s Academy for the Environment, and former Green reporter for the Reno News & Review.

I have a bachelor’s degree in biology (ecology, evolution and behavior), and ten years of work experience in field biology, conservation, and environmental restoration. For more about my work history, view my profile on LinkedIn.

Please explore this website for selected samples of my published work. Other samples are available on Truckee River Guide, an interactive field guide and citizen science project for the Truckee River region.

Thanks for visiting!
