"The poetry of the earth is never dead."

-John Keats


I’m an award-winning journalist covering science and the environment from Portland, Oregon. I write about how the world works and how humans are changing it. My work has appeared in The New York Times, The Atlantic, Science, Hakai, High Country News, and many other publications.

I’m currently writing a book about grass and humans and our relationship to nature, for Ecco.

I also publish a newsletter called BookSmarts about researching nonfiction writing.

Here are a few of my favorite stories.
