I'm a freelance writer interested in a whole range of topics, but usually I find myself snooping for stories at the messy intersection of biology and technology. I'm now a contributing writer at Fast Company. In the past, I've written for Nature Biotechnology, New Scientist's CultureLab blog, and the tech and science blogs at NBC News.
