About

I’m a freelance writer and illustrator who writes about science and history, especially involving ladies. I also draw and screen print and make monsters/creatures, science/biological and natural processes, and sometimes also ladies. I used to lift weights with my tongue and eat fire on a traveling sideshow and can be persuaded to do those things again.

On Instagram, I take pictures of my dog wearing hats. On Tumblr, I draw monsters and people and nature-inspired things. On Twitter, I try to remember to use Twitter.

My recent writing work has been published at Atlas Obscura, which is an excellent place to go read about the science of paranoia, articulating whale bonespoisonous Victorian-era advice columns, tenement-era fortune tellers and the Danish anarchist roots of SantaCon. In fact, there’s a full list here that seems, as if by magic, to keep growing.

I also write educational materials, including the narrative script for a video about endosymbiosis for HarvardX (their mitochondria class, available here). I’ve also been published at New Republic, The Mission Hill Gazette, the Jamaica Plain Gazette, NolaDefender and RV Escapees magazine.
