I’m a freelance writer and illustrator (and so on) who likes to write about science and history, especially involving ladies. I also draw and screen print and make, I’m told, horrible monsters, 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 sometimes be persuaded to do such things again. Queer, based in Brooklyn, blah blah.
On Instagram, I take pictures of my dog wearing hats. On Tumblr, when I actually get around to scanning images, 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 I cannot lie, is an excellent place to go read about the science of paranoia, articulating whale bones, poisonous 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, most recenty the narrative script for a video about endosymbiosis for HarvardX (their mitochondria class, available here). They put great classes together! I’ve also been published in New Republic, The Mission Hill Gazette, the Jamaica Plain Gazette, NolaDefender and RV Escapees magazine.
