I'm an author currently living in Princeton, NJ, where I work as a science writer for the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory. I've written for NASA, the Wall Street Journal, Space.com, EARTH, SciArt in America, and Scholastic Science World. My new book is titled "Math Geek". My goal was to show how mathematics is not just a subject one masters to pass tests in school. On the contrary, math is something built into the fabric of reality, a collection of shapes, patterns, numbers, and arguments that are both beautiful and revealing. I argue that becoming familiar with some of these mathematical concepts is similar to reading Shakespearean sonnets or looking at a sunset. Math isn't just technical. It's also graceful and worth studying for its own sake.
As for my background, I have a master's degree in journalism from the University of Southern California and a bachelor's in philosophy from Williams College. I also spent almost ten years working at the Exploratorium, San Francisco's hands-on museum of science, art, and human perception
