Writing is a significant part of what I do. With a background in biology and environmental history, I am uniquely at home with deciphering and writing about the most complicated aspects of natural science for a general audience.

Below, you will find a small sample of articles on both photography and natural history that I have published. This is by no means a complete collection.
