Writing For a Global Multidisciplinary Research Institution

Before going freelance in 2009, I spent a combined 12 years at the Smithsonian Institution where I held positions as:

  • The science writer and communications lead for the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center in Edgewater, Maryland
  • A video producer for the National Museum of Natural History in Washington, D.C.
  • A biological technician in the Division of Fishes
  • The assistant scientific diving officer for the institution.

As a freelance, I have been a regular contributor to the Smithsonian Insider online magazine which “takes you beyond the bricks and mortar of the Smithsonian’s 19 museums and 9 research centers, to share with you the astounding and diverse work being conducted by the Smithsonian around the world.”
