My written and multimedia work has appeared in publications including The Best American Science Writing, The New York Times, Popular Science, O, The Oprah Magazine, The Los Angeles Times, The San Francisco Chronicle, The Washington Post Magazine, Salon, Slate, Men’s Journal, Mother Jones, Health Magazine, and Outside, among others. A graduate of Yale and UC Berkeley’s Graduate School of Journalism, I’m a contributing editor at Popular Science and author of a parody travel guide called 101 Places Not to See Before You Die (HarperPaperbacks, 2010) and The Big Sur Bakery Cookbook (HarperCollins, 2009). I’m also a recipient of a Middlebury Fellowship in Environmental Reporting, a Société de Chimie Industrielle Fellowship at the Chemical Heritage Foundation, a ASME nominee, a 2013 resident at the Mesa Refuge and winner of the Gobind Behari Lal prize for science writing. I started an online business called Illegal Briefs that sells legally themed underwear. I’m currently working on a book about the history of vitamins and nutrition for The Penguin Press, with additional support from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.
