I’m a freelance reporter living in the San Francisco Bay Area. My work has appeared in The Atlantic, This American Life, and WIRED, among other outlets. I’ve written about questionable cancer treatments, Native American casinos, using beavers to combat climate change and lots of other odd things. In 2016, my feature The Fever won the National Academy of Sciences Communication Award. (It was also nominated for a National Magazine Award for reporting, but lost to this crazy good story.)

I’m a graduate of the University of California, Berkeley and the University of California, Santa Barbara. In my free time, I enjoy sandwiches.
