I write about and uncover science and research stories, and find the best channels to share them with the public and other audiences. I work with national and local reporters, and help them connect with experts at the university.

I am a former journalist and previously covered health, health policy, medicine, science and music.

I wrote investigative articles and, as a freelancer, wrote reviews of concerts and previews and profiles of the artists. Over the course of many years and in several cities, I interviewed or reviewed Rufus Wainwright, Coldplay, Taylor Swift, Badly Drawn Boy, Melissa Ferrick, The Killers, The Shins, Death Cab for Cutie, Jenny Lewis, Jason Mraz, Michael Buble, My Morning Jacket and Elvis Perkins, among others.

My work has appeared in The Seattle Times, The Nation, Stateline.org, Puget Sound Business Journal, Washington Law & Politics, Seattle Star, Washington City Paper, Denver’s Westword and Baltimore City Paper.
