I am a lifestyle writer, with a special focus on general health, sexual and reproductive health, nutrition, fitness, psychology, service journalism, and human interest profiles. I'm all about the scientific method and evidence-based medicine, and love the idea that great writing can turn a potentially scary or boring health topic into something interesting, digestible, and genuinely useful and empowering to readers.
Here are some examples of my work at different publications.
