Before this, I was a freelance journalist in Washington, DC. My writing has appeared (online or in print) in: The Atlantic, Outside magazine, National Journal magazine, The New Republic, The Columbia Journalism Review, New York mag's "Science of Us" blog, The Boston Globe Magazine, Boston magazine, and elsewhere. I'm a graduate of Tufts University, where I was the editor-in-chief of the Tufts Observer, the student magazine and the school's oldest publication.
I'm a washed-up college cross country/track runner, and in my spare time I run entirely too much. You can find me by the coffee.
