I am a science journalist and editor based in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories. I write about the environment and health.
My work has appeared in the New York Times, Hakai Magazine, Spectrum, and Yale Environment 360, among other publications. I have reported stories on the social science of rip current safety, northern Indigenous communities that are harvesting new country foods in a changing climate, and the scientific evidence behind claims that cold plunging is beneficial for mental health.
I was previously a Wilfrid Laurier University climate change journalism fellow with Cabin Radio and an assistant online content editor at Psychology Today. Outside of journalism, I write proposals for northern architectural projects.
In addition to writing, I have experience working with audio and video. In 2017, I created a short film that was screened at the New York Wild Film Festival, the Art of Brooklyn Film Festival and the Environmental Film Festival at Yale.
I grew up in Alberta, studied natural resource conservation at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, and completed a master's degree in science, health, and environmental reporting at New York University.
I like writing about environmental health and justice, as well as the sometimes complicated, unexpected situations that arise when scientific ideas are applied in practice.
