About

I’ve written about astrophysicists and athletes, cosmologists and Arctic conservators, geologists and psychologists and farmers and awesome children. What I enjoy, above all, is telling a good story. This world of ours is complex, but it’s filled with plenty of wonder and sparkle.

In addition to the books I’ve written, I’ve also written for the Boston Globe Magazine, Martha Stewart’s Whole Living Online, and I was the sole story researcher/casting director for the hour-long primetime special, Sesame Street: Growing Hope Against Hunger, which won a 2012 Emmy Award.
