Let's Talk Science.

Science permeates every aspect of our lives, for every person worldwide, and having a basic understanding of science is essential for making good decisions about our health, our children, and our financial stability. Despite this, the scientific world often fails to talk to policymakers, beneficiaries, and interested publics in an accessible and useful manner.  Intermediaries, like science communicators, need to be increasingly creative and active in order to make sure science remains at the center of our society, and our hearts.

For the last decade, I have been a natural resource science policy advisor and program manager, who also works on strategic and behavior change communications to infuse science-based reasoning into our world.  My clients and employers have included NGOs, and the United States and Indonesian governments, TV networks, international academic institutions, ecologically-minded startups and consulting firms, the United Nations' organizations. My approaches include photojournalism, creative science writing, environmental communications training, and hosting events that make complex scientific topics accessible to non-scientists.  The links above give more info on each topic; click the About link to contact me to help your organization improve its scientific communication capacity and outreach.
