As a freelance writer, I have written for magazines, newspapers, research institutions, corporations and hospitals. Some of my current ongoing work includes two articles per issue for Weatherwise magazine, and regular posts to a patient story blog for Anne Arundel Medical Center.
I have written about a wide range of subject areas including natural history, Earth sciences, oceanography, marine science, meteorology, the environment, climate change, health and medicine, and biomedical research. My articles have been cited in The Daily Beast, National Geographic Online, and the US Air Force Center for Strategy and Technology.
