My work has appeared in The Atlantic, The Believer, Lapham's Quarterly, Longreads, Grist, The Catapult, and Vice, among other outlets. My piece, "What's Left Behind," was anthologized in The Best American Science and Nature Writing 2016 and The Best American Travel Writing 2016. In 2018, I was a panelist at the Aspen Ideas Festival, where I discussed melting permafrost, antibiotic resistance and my piece about the search for new life at the North Pole.  

I hold an MFA in creative nonfiction from Columbia University, where I taught undergraduate creative writing.  I was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest and now I live in Brooklyn, New York.
