My work is inspired by thousands of miles at sea as a U.S. Coast Guard licensed captain. I care about stories that draw on the intersection of science, culture, and heart, providing a new perspective on the world. I love working with teams on multi-element projects that maximize community engagement. That’s why I co-founded Hello Ocean to support science through multi-media and research-under-sail expeditions. My recent appointments include UC Santa Cruz science journalism graduate program, and PBS NewsHour Science and Social Media Fellow, and science writer for the National Human Genome Research Institute. I’m currently a senior staff writer at Freethink and a National Geographic Explorer where I plan to continue using multi-media to inspire people to create solutions.
