I am a journalist with more than twenty years of experience covering biology and medicine, first as a staff reporter for the Ann Arbor Observer and then, since 1998, as a freelance writer. My stories have appeared in Science, Nature, Technology Review, Nature Biotechnology, and Nature Reviews Drug Discovery. Between 2000 and 2016 I was a contributing correspondent for the Journal of the National Cancer Institute (JNCI).  I live in Ann Arbor and enjoy exploring the north woods of Michigan and neighboring Ontario, on foot and on skis, in my free time.
