Science Communication & Outreach

Are you a regular person who isn’t a scientist, but likes science, and you want to learn more about science? Then I want to talk to you!

I think science is awesome and I love talking about it, without the jargon, preferably with humor.

I helped found a summer camp

I bring my skills as both a scientist and an artist to Camp Quin, where I work with teens to cultivate curiosity, creativity, and community in the natural world.
