Projects

WriteSpike is a social media platform for writers, readers, artists, and musicians where I publish reviews, opinion pieces, science communication articles, and creative fiction stories. I’m currently releasing chapters of my cozy murder mystery Malpractice and reviews of other works.

Fungi Town was an audio program aimed at bringing the wide and wonderful world of mycology (the study of molds, mushrooms, and fungi) to a broad audience. The last episode was published in 2020. As “mayor” of Fungi Town, I wrote, edited, and produced an engaging show that included interviews with experts and hobbyists from diverse fields. I also gave live presentations to local conservation groups.

UpWork is a platform for freelance writers, editors, programmers, and virtual assistants. I have helped several clients develop blog content, proofread, edit, and organize data. Topics have included coffee, fishing advice, commercial finance, kratom and creative fiction.

IEEE Earthzine granted me a writing fellowship, which culminated in a biographic article about oceanographer Mandy Joye.

Seven Months on Saint Catherines is an ecology blog I wrote during an internship off the coast of Georgia, where I cared for ring-tailed lemurs and cranes.

Athens Science Observer is a student, peer-reviewed blog where two of my articles were published: Addiction Research Gets Ant-sy and The Branded Body.

Shrinking in the Heat – an article about the Red Knot, a migratory shorebird that has been showing signs of reduced body size as a result of climate shifting.

Mims Park News – a news-style article about proposed renovations to Mims Park, Atlanta, Georgia.

Why Care About Dog Waste? – a persuasive article concerning citizens’ roles in managing dog waste.
