I Love Writing Science Content
I Love Crafting Words
I Love Designing Content
I majored in Biology and Psychology so am naturally curious and science-minded. I particularly love to write about behavioral neuroscience and climate change.
I spent nine years designing websites and related content and know how to apply established design principles to both written and graphic content to create an engaging story.
I was asked in a recent interview what made me curious and I responded “anything related to science or medicine.”
I am a Seattle-based science content writer with over 15-years’ experience writing science, healthcare, and technical publications. I love writing about all things science, but the mind-body interaction has always held a special fascination for me, hence my B.S. degree in Biology and Psychology.
Though I did not end up becoming a biologist, my love of science never left me. Now, the recent challenges against STEM have energized me to return to science to raise public awareness of scientific advances and the issue of climate change.
So how did I become a writer? Very unexpectedly, actually. As a financial analyst for the U.S. Army, I discovered I had an aptitude for writing articles publicizing Army productivity investment successes. Since then, I have written all types of digital and print content: blogs, news articles, science reports, social media, e-books, medical brochures, press releases, long-form content, and technical publications.
I have always a keen eye for design, which I and eventually translated this into freelance web design and development. I am a bit of a minimalist when it comes to design, which I use to my advantage when creating lean, accessible science content based on established design principles.
So what would be my ideal job? In short, any scenario or project where I can translate my passion for science into engaging, informative, and sometimes actionable content that always keeps the audience’s needs at the forefront.
I am a detailed technologist with a
strong creative side.
