From penning tight write-ups for the clever readers of DailyCandy.com to serving as Beauty Editor for Lucire (New Zealand's Vanity Fair equivalent) or delivering chunky services pieces for magazines like Harper's Bazaar and Pregnancy and Newborn, my work has been diverse, but always, it has mingled with culture and science. Now that I'm focused on parenting, understanding the (often divergent) forces of science and culture is even more of a passion.
I strive for journalistic excellence by first conducting deep analysis of scientific studies and then considering the entire body of work on the subject. This allows me to add an accurate, holistic, and meaningful take on the collective conversation surrounding an issue, or to add fresh, useful advice to a service piece. I believe readers deserve better than science reporting that simply regurgitates the researchers' conclusions or worse, puts a sensationalized spin on them. Here is a sampling of published print articles across a decade of freelance journalism. Specific story ideas are available upon request.
