I became a journalist when I realized I could turn my tendency to ask socially inappropriate questions into a career. 

My work has appeared in The New Yorker, The Atlantic, Vice, Quartz, and other publications. I have also been reprinted in the Week Magazine, featured on Pocket and This.cm, and cited on the New York Times' "What We're Reading" List. 

I write about everything, but I'm particularly interested in stories where science & culture intersect.
