I work for the NASA Earth Observatory, a website focused on covering our climate and environment through the lens of satellite imagery. Some topics I regularly cover include meteorology, air quality, wildfires, geology, and environmental change. I also help maintain the Earth Matters blog and Earth Observatory’s social media presence. In 2016, I authored the book Alphabet from Space.

When I have spare time, I  freelance. My work has most recently appeared in the Huffington Post, Runner’s World, Earth, and Streetsblog Capitol Hill. Before writing for NASA, I was medical reporter for U.S. News & World Report, where I covered environmental and men’s health.

In 2005, I graduated from Brown University with a degree in geology-biology. In 2014, I earned a masters degree in science writing from Johns Hopkins University. I grew up in Western Massachusetts along with a vegetable farm, two older brothers, and a younger sister. I am the proud father of a little boy and currently live with my wife, an abstract painter, in Washington D.C.
