Hey hey! I’m a Denver-based magazine journalist orbiting around the fringes of science and culture currently writing a non-fiction book for Palgrave Macmillan Trade.

I frequently contribute to WIRED, and have written for Medium, Los Angeles MagazineOnion A.V. ClubBEER, and soon Pacific Standard and Outside. I was also an editor & writer for Boulder County’s Yellow Scene Magazine until 2014 when I pursued freelance writing. While there, I managed putting a bingo drag queen on a cover thus achieving a life goal.

My WIRED stories cover a gamut of intrigue—from 3-D printed body partscloud speakers, bug sushi, and Darwin’s facial expressions to my feature story on the banana-clad madness of Decentralized Dance Parties.

Above all else, I seek compelling stories about obsessed people doing curious things. If you have any interesting leads, weird stories, or want to chat about comic books and bugs, holler at me!
