Sci/ Edu Journalist +Visuals/Interactives

Hello,

Currently, I’m a staff writer, assigned to cover emergency medicine for MedPage Today, purveyor of the finest medical journalism.

I was a 2012 Tow-Knight entrepreneurial journalism fellow. I’m co-founder of WiredAcademic — we cover online learning, from MOOCs and for-profit schools, to flipped classrooms and the gamification of education.

I write, mostly about health, science, and education. I get to learn about fun things like bulletproof dogs and deep sea mining machines.

I make photos, mainly documentary and environmental portraits.

I produce narrative videos.

I build data driven and reported infographics whenever I can. And these are all best enjoyed together in interactive projects.


I share what I dig on the social web.
