I’m a freelance journalist based near Philadelphia. I write about science, food, travel, awesome people, and a little bit of everything else.

My work has appeared in The New York Times, The Washington Post, SIERRA, Woman’s DayUSA Today, Harper’s BazaarSlate, SAVEUR, BBC, Popular Science, Popular Mechanics, and many other publications.

Some recent work includes a glimpse into America’s newest national park, an essay on love, loss, and pickles, the long and hopeful story of the American Chestnut, and the timeless tale of a small-town amusement park
