I am a science writer based in Seattle, Washington. I have spent most of my career at the University of Washington as editor of the faculty-staff newspaper, University Week, and writing about international public health, medical research and bioengineering — always for a general audience. As the world of journalism moved from print to the web, I went with it by developing an expertise in information architecture. I have organized, and in some cases developed, several web sites for the university. I am very comfortable moving between writing and organizing content for print and the web with an eye toward making the complexity of scientific discovery accurate, visual, and interesting. Often when I am not at my desk I am behind a camera taking a fresh look at life around me. My professional work encompasses my academic degrees in international relations, journalism, and audiology plus my new interest in neuroscience.
