I’m the Senior STEAM Education Specialist for the National Radio Astronomy Observatory in Socorro, New Mexico.
I’m also a freelance science writer and communicator. My work has been published in The Atlantic, Smithsonian, Now.Space, Scientific American, Slate, and Nautilus. I’ve hosted and appeared in science and STEM educational videos for NBC News, City University of New York, and Disney Junior. For many years, I was the in-house astrophysicist for The Rachel Maddow Show on MSNBC. You can find all my work under the Portfolio tab (from the drop down menu, upper left). You can also chose to view writing, audio, video, or events separately.
I also enjoy communicating solely in GIFs whenever humanly possible.
