Freelance writer

I blog and podcast about science for non-scientists. I also help companies doing research and development find ways to better present their work.  Got something complicated you need communicated?  I’m your guy.

Technical Editor

I help scientists and engineers rework highly-technical articles into more accessible copy.  From research in nanolithography and bio-medical devices to astronomical optics, I make the densest of subject matter flow smoothly off the page.

Astrophysicist

Since 2005, I have researched the nature of comets, the evolution of galaxies, and the formation of planets.  Currently I work at the U.S. Naval Observatory Flagstaff Station where I look for planets orbiting very young stars in our Galaxy.
