About

I’ve been writing about science for about 20 years. For the past seven of them I’ve translated and copyedited Technologist, a European science magazine geared for the general public. Before that I worked for the Media and Communications Office at the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), writing press releases, interviewing scientists, organizing press conferences, and writing articles for internal and external publications.

I have a BA in Philosophy from Pomona College, and an MS in Atmospheric Science from the University of California, Davis. I’m a card-carrying member of the US National Association of Science Writers and a member of the Editors Association of Canada.

To get a taste of my recent writing, you can visit Gydle, a blog I launched in 2011 to experiment with new writing styles and subjects.

In 2015 I translated a book by Swiss author Philippe Barraud. Beyond Contact: Exploring our search for extraterrestrial life is available on Amazon Kindle.

I’ve worked with all kinds of writers on all kinds of projects: fiction, non-fiction, essays, interviews, proposals, theses, and even poetry. This is what they have to say.

I love great writing. Let’s work together to make yours better.
