I am a freelance writer and editor with more than a decade of experience reporting for newspapers, magazines, and public radio. I've reported from remote tribal lands in northeastern Montana, a bug zoo in Japan, and the floor of the New York Stock Exchange. I graduated with honors from the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism, where I focused on science and environmental reporting.
