About Me I am the online/associate editor for HAWAII Magazine where I write event, travel, culture and environment stories for the website and magazine. I also occasionally freelance for various print and online sources including National Geographic Books, National Geographic News, National Geographic Traveler and U.S. News & World Report. I have a master’s degree in science journalism, and have worked as an in-house editorial researcher with National Geographic Traveler Magazine, as a science news writer for COSMOS Magazine in Sydney, Australia, and in radio for the NPR program Living on Earth. I also spent two years as the Science Outreach Specialist for the scientific engagement non-profit COMPASS. After receiving my BSc from the University of Michigan in environmental science and aquatic ecology, I spent nearly three years working aboard commercial fishing boats in New England as a Marine Fisheries Observer. Before transitioning to science journalism, I studied the impacts of invasive species on Great Lakes fish communities and the water chemistry of permafrost meltwater in arctic Alaska in order to detect changes over time. I am an avid scuba diver and traveler, and have been diving off five continents.
