About

This is me.

I grew up in Bellport, a small town on the South Shore of Long Island where Manhattan elite escape for the summer; where kids toss their bikes against the façade of the pizza shop; where the railroad tracks are a racial schism; where the curio shops outnumber the grocery stores; where the beach can be yours alone on a midnight run.

I went to college at Columbia University, where I got my BA in physics and spent a minute or two at the student paper.

I spent two years in internships. I was at the AGU, then Fermilab, moved to Nautilus, and finished up with Science News.

Now, I’m a freelance science journalist. I write primarily about the physical sciences, with an emphasis on particle physics. (That said, my interests are fairly broad and omnivorous.)
