10380141_10152187632351463_6318933548014261221_o-1I am a Washington state-based freelance writer, illustrator and editor who covers the environment, science and the arts.

I’m most interested in natural history, biology, and how people interact with and value other creatures and landscapes, particularly those places many of us might think of as wastelands. My writing and reporting have appeared in The Atlantic, Hakai Magazine, The Washington Post, High Country News, BioGraphic, National Geographic News, Audubon.com, Smithsonian.com, The Guardian, Patagonia’s The Cleanest Line, and The Last Word on Nothing. My work was recently anthologized in The Best Women’s Travel Writing, Volume 11.
