My work

I’ve also written science stories, white papers, strategic plans, annual reports, grant proposals, speeches, FAQs, research papers, commentaries, brochure copy, newsletters, social media posts, fiction, creative non-fiction, restaurant reviews, travel guides, curriculum, and countless to-do lists.
