My Bio

I’m a born and raised Vancouverite who returned to the Pacific Northwest after: Studying zoology at the University of Toronto; falling for a small town in central Texas called Mason whilst working for The Nature Conservancy as the local bat cave steward (yes, that’s right, bats); running off to London to get a Master’s in Science Communication at Imperial College (during which time I waited tables at the singular Abeno Okonomiyaki and brushed up on my Japanese); interning at Discover magazine in NYC and falling head over heels in love with the Shake Shack among countless other delights there.

I currently write science and environment stories for outlets like Scientific American, Canadian Geographic, The Walrus,, BCBusiness magazine and National Geographic News. You may also find me on expedition with water advocate and scion of the diving clan, Alexandra Cousteau. For more on my bragging rights, check out this page.
