Hi! I’m a journalist and fiction writer covering travel, science and technology, and culture. My work has appeared in  ScienceThe New York Times Magazine, TED Ideas, Granta, and The Kenyon Review, among other places. I’ve also done audio storytelling and literary translation. (I’m fluent in Spanish.)

I have a B.S. in physics and a B.A. in creative writing from the University of Southern California and an M.F.A. in fiction from Cornell University. I’ve worked as a reporter and editor at Science magazine. In 2015-2016, I spent nine months in Nicaragua on a Fulbright grant, researching a novel.

I’ve lived in Scotland, Silicon Valley, Washington, DC., New York City, Nicaragua, Spain, and Morocco.

Thanks for reading!
